From VOA Learning English, this is EXPLORATIONS in Special English. I'm Jeri Watson. And I'm Jim Tedder. Today we visit a small museum in the American state of Maryland. It is called the National Cryptologic Museum. There you will find information that was once secret. The National Cryptologic Museum is on Fort George G. Meade, a military base near Washington, DC. It tells the story of cryptology and the men and women who have worked in this unusual profession. The word cryptology comes from the Greek "kryptos logos." It means "hidden word." Cryptology is writing or communicating in ways designed to hide the meaning of your words. The museum has many examples of equipment that was once used to make information secret. It also has equipment that was developed to read secret messages. The method of hiding exact meanings is called coding. People have used secret codes throughout history to protect important information. One display at the museum explains American attempts to read Japanese military information during World War Two. Japan's Navy used special machines to change its written information into secret codes. This coded information was then sent by radio to navy ships and military bases. The information included secret military plans and orders. The leaders of the Japanese Navy believed no one could read or understand the secret codes. They were wrong. Americans were working very hard to learn the Japanese code. The United States urgently needed to break the code to learn what Japan was planning. In 1940, an American woman named Genevieve Grotjan found some information being repeated in Japanese coded messages. At the time, she was a civilian working for the government in Washington, DC. Her discovery helped the United States understand secret Japanese diplomatic messages. After the United States understood the code, it was possible to study messages from the Japanese ambassador to Germany and to his supervisors in Japan. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, an American Naval officer named Joseph Rochefort struggled to understand the Japanese navy code. He worked on the American base at Pearl Harbor. It was early in 1942. The American naval commander in the Pacific Ocean was Chester Nimitz. His forces were much smaller than the Japanese Naval forces. And the Japanese had been winning many victories. Joseph Rochefort had worked for several months to read the secret Japanese Naval code called JN-25. If he could understand enough of the code, he would be able to give Admiral Nimitz very valuable information. The admiral could use this information to plan for battle. By the early part of the year, Mr. Rochefort and the men who worked with him could read a little less than 20 percent of the Japanese JN-25 code. Joseph Rochefort had the evidence he needed. "AF" was now known to be the island of Midway. He also told Admiral Nimitz the Japanese would attack Midway on June third. The admiral secretly moved his small force to an area near Midway and waited for the Japanese Navy. The battle that followed was a huge American victory. Experts now say the Battle of Midway was the beginning of the American victory in the Pacific. That victory was possible because Joseph Rochefort learned to read enough of the Japanese code to discover the meaning of the letters "AF." One American code has never been broken. Perhaps it never will. It was used in the Pacific during World War Two. For many years the government would not discuss this secret code. Listen for a moment to this very unusual code. Then you may understand why the Japanese military forces were never able to understand any of it. The code is in the voice of a Native American. The man you just heard is singing a simple song in the Navajo language. Very few people outside the Navajo nation are able to speak any of their very difficult language. At the beginning of World War Two, the United States Marine Corps asked members of the Navajo tribe to train as Code Talkers. The Cryptologic Museum says the Marine Corps Code Talkers could take a sentence in English and change it into their language in about 20 seconds. A code machine needed about 30 minutes to do the same work. The Navajo Code Talkers took part in every battle the Marines entered in the Pacific during World War Two. The Japanese were very skilled at breaking codes. But they were never able to understand any of what they called "The Marine Code." Perhaps the most famous is a World War Two German code machine called the Enigma. The word "enigma" means a puzzle or a problem that is difficult to solve. The German military used the Enigma machine to communicate orders and plans. The United States, Britain, and the government of Poland cooperated in learning to read information sent by the Enigma. It took thousands of people and cost millions of dollars to read the Enigma information. This is a VOA product and is in the public domain

U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association Naval cryptology traces its history to the Civil War, when specially trained personnel intercepted and deciphered enemy signals and formulated ways to protect their own communications. The first wireless transmission from a Navy ship in 1899 created newly assigned responsibilities in radio intelligence and communications security to Sailors and Marines. In October 1928, the Navy’s and Marine Corps’ first training class of radio intercept operators convened. The school’s original location was in a blockhouse on the roof of the old Navy Department building. Graduates were nicknamed the “On-the-Roof Gang.” There are three survivors today. From 1928 to 1941, the school graduated 176 Sailors and Marines who were the first enlisted radio operators and formed the vanguard of naval cryptology. The evolution of naval cryptology from 1924 to 1935 gave rise to the Communications Security Group which was established on March 11, 1935. The original organization was later renamed the Naval Security Group. During World War II, nearly 10,000 naval cryptologists deployed worldwide supporting every major campaign. Since then, cryptologists have played a direct role in every U.S. conflict and have evolved to meet the dynamic challenges of modern cyber warfare. Today, the community is more than 11,000 strong. Feb. 6, 2004 –The Navy established the Cryptologic Technician Networks (CTN) rating to meet fleet requirements in computer network operations. Sept. 15, 2005 – The Navy renamed cryptologic officers “information warfare officers” to reflect the expanded competencies of information operations and cyber warfare. Sept. 30, 2005 – The Naval Security Group was disestablished and all missions were assumed by Naval Network Warfare Command. Oct. 1, 2009 – The Information Dominance Corps was established. The Corps consists of four separate communities: IW/CT; Intelligence/Intelligence Specialists; Information Professionals and Technicians; and Oceanographers/Aerographers. Jan. 29, 2010 – U.S. 10th Fleet was recommissioned, Fleet Cyber Command was established, and the dual-hatted command assumed the Navy’s cryptologic, information operations, cyber, electronic warfare and space missions. Nov. 26, 2012 – Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance/Director of Naval Intelligence, and Commander, U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. 10th Fleet, promulgated strategies that set the course for Information Dominance for the decade. March 22, 2013 – Commander, U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. 10th Fleet announced the winner of the 2013 Captain Joseph Rochefort Information Warfare (IW) Officer Distinguished Leadership Award. Vice. Adm. Michael S. Rogers announced Lt. Cmdr. Lemuel "Seth" Lawrence, executive officer of Navy Information Operations Command Pensacola, is the 2013 winner. April 19, 2013 –U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. 10th Fleet Sailor was named 2012 Navy Shore Sailor of the Year. Vice Adm. Richard W. Hunt, Director, Navy Staff, announced that Cryptologic Technician (Networks) 1st Class Petty Officer Shannon N. McQueen, CTF 1060/Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC) Maryland, is 2012 Navy Shore Sailor of the Year.

The Zimmerman Telegram During times of war, messages are often sent in code to prevent the enemy from finding out about secret plans. Spies are everywhere, and if the message is ever decoded by an unintended recipient, it can change the course of history… and that’s exactly what happened in 1917. 9. The Battle of Midway The Battle of Midway, which took place between the 4th and 7th of June, 1942, was one of the American military’s biggest victories over the Japanese navy during the second world war. In this battle over 3,000 Japanese sailors lost their lives and 4 aircraft carriers were destroyed, while the Americans lost 300 sailors and one carrier. It could have all been different, though, had US cryptographers not intercepted and decoded Japanese transmissions. 8. The Babington Plot The Babington plot was an attempt, in 1586, to assassinate Queen Elizabeth the First, protestant daughter of King Henry VIII. The goal was to replace her on the throne with Mary Queen of Scots, who was her Roman Catholic cousin. On July 6th that year, Anthony Babington, encouraged by support from abroad (mostly Spain) wrote a long letter to Mary, who at the time was already in prison. 7. Olivier Levasseur According to legend, the notorious French Pirate, Olivier Levasseur, managed to acquire a huge fortune during his piracy across the Caribbean and West Africa- most notably in 1721 when he and his crew captured a Portuguese treasure ship that had become grounded on a sandbar during a storm- an act that is said to be one of the greatest paydays in the history of piracy. 6. Poe’s Challenge Edgar Allan Poe was a renowned writer and poet, known for his stories of mystery… but he was also fascinated with ciphers and codes. He even wrote a story, The Gold Bug, about the solution to one. In 1840, he wrote an article for Graham's magazine called ‘A Few Words on Secret Writing' in which he invited readers to send him coded messages for him to decipher. 5. Linear B In 1900, among the ruins of a Bronze age palace in Knossos, Greece, archaeologists found a script that resembled nothing that had ever been seen before. Containing images of swords, chariots, and countless other small pictograms, this system of writing became known as Linear B and would prove to be a mystery for the following 50 years. 4. Frank Sidebottom Frank Sidebottom was the papier-mâché headed comedy persona of English musician Chris Sievey. Throughout his career in the 80s and 90s, he fronted tv and radio shows and even reported for the local news. He created numerous newsletters and writings over this time, too, and these were often accompanied by symbols around them… ones that people long suspected had a meaning, but they couldn't work out what it was. 3. Chaocipher The Chaocipher was created by John Francis Byrne in 1918 and was what he described as being unbreakable… yet simple. So simple, in fact, that it only required two rotating discs that were small enough to fit into a cigar box and could be operated by a ten-year-old. He offered a cash reward to anyone who could crack it, but this is something that would never be claimed. 2. The Copiale Cipher Created in the 1730s, the Copiale cipher is a 105-page manuscript that has baffled researchers ever since…That is until 2011 when it was finally decoded. Consisting of 75,000 handwritten characters; including arrows, shapes, runes, math symbols, roman letters, and Greek letters… there were only two examples of plain text in the entire book. 1. The Enigma Code The Enigma was an enciphering machine used by the German armed forces during the second world war to send secure messages. Early on, Polish mathematicians had figured out how to read these messages, but once the Germans realized this, they began to change the cipher system daily, making it virtually impossible to decipher.

June 4, 2013 U.S. Naval War College Commemoration of the Battle of Midway: "Gettysburg and Midway: Historical Parallels in Command" Prof. Robert Rubel, Dean, Center for Naval Warfare Studies Introduction by Rear Adm. John N. Christenson, president U.S. Naval War College The battles of Gettysburg and Midway each represented a major turning point in their respective wars. In each case a vaunted enemy commander leading a tactically and technically outstanding force was defeated by an underdog American force. The reasons for the Confederate and Japanese defeats are similar, which provide lessons in operational level leadership. This lecture will trace the parallels between the battles and examine how the same defects in planning and decision making on the part of Gen. Robert E. Lee and Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto produced similar results: strategic defeat. ***** Disclaimer: The views expressed are the speaker's own and may not necessarily reflect the views of the Naval War College, the Department of the Navy, the Department of Defense, or any other branch or agency of the U.S. Government.

Feature speaker for the VietNow's MIA program on September 12, 2014 was Navy Chief Petty Officer Jeremy T. Crandal. The following was copied for the Military Times . Chief Cryptologic Technician (Collection) Jeremy Crandall is described by superiors and subordinates as a humble leader driven by a desire to see sailors develop and succeed. Crandall’s career as a cryptologic technician is storied. He had fewer than two years in uniform when, on April 1, 2001, he was one of 24 crew members detained by China after a collision between their EP-3E ARIES II signals intelligence aircraft and a Chinese J-8II interceptor fighter forced an emergency landing. In the long 11 days that followed, he witnessed the "strong and selfless leadership" of a senior enlisted crew member who helped get the team through its harrowing ordeal. This example had a lasting impression on Crandall, who cites this as the defining model of his own career. Crandall has spent much of the past 15 years encouraging and enabling at-risk sailors who face dire circumstances of their own. Most recently, the chief created BALLAST, a wide-ranging program centered on 342 hours of classroom instruction covering everything from financial management and drug/alcohol awareness to naval history and professional appearance. The program also features 18 hours of community service. Named after the ballast used to keep a ship upright and afloat, the program is nearing completion of its first year. Though it was originally designed to correct and direct at-risk sailors, the program has gained popularity among enlisted leaders and now has a waiting list of volunteers who look to grow personally and professionally. “Chief Crandall is a strong example of what it means to be a Navy chief. He has the attention of his subordinates, the respect of his fellow chiefs, the support of the ship’s officers and the trust of his commander.” Capt. Karl Thomas, Abraham Lincoln’s commanding officer There is little need for a cryptologic technician while a nuclear-powered carrier goes through the three-year Refueling and Complex Overhaul. Instead of coasting through this tour, Crandall stepped up to take charge of the ship's security forces. In that role, he leads one of the ship’s largest divisions – 128 sailors representing 22 different ratings. The division has achieved a 70 percent advancement rate and 90 percent retention rate, and 36 sailors have earned individual warfare qualifications. The chief’s selfless service does not end when he departs the carrier. The Civil War buff has more than four dozen volunteer hours as a historical guide in Lee Hall Mansion in Newport News, Virginia. Crandall also mentors dozens of youths at his local church, and does so while maintaining a 3.90 grade point average in pursuit of his bachelor’s degree in history from Southern New Hampshire University, where he was recently inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda, a national honor society that recognizes high academic achievement. Crandall's warfare qualifications include the Enlisted Information Dominance Warfare Specialist, Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist, Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist and Naval Aircrewman designations, and his personal awards include the Air Medal, Navy Commendation Medals and the Navy Achievement Medal.

Norman Friedman, “Fighters Over the Fleet: Naval Air Defence from Biplanes to the Cold War,” Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, March 1, 2018. “Fighters Over the Fleet” is an account of the parallel evolution of naval fighters for fleet air defense and the ships they sought to defend. This volume concentrates on the three main advocates of carrier warfare: the Royal Navy, the U.S. Navy, and the Imperial Japanese Navy. Because radar was not invented until the mid-1930s, fleet air defense was a primitive effort for flyers during the 1920s. Once the innovative system was developed and utilized, organized air defense became viable. Thus major naval-air battles of the Second World War—like Midway, the “Pedestal” convoy, the Philippine Sea and Okinawa—are portrayed as tests of the new technology. However, even radar was ultimately found wanting by the Kamikaze campaigns, which led to postwar moves toward computer control and new kinds of fighters. After 1945, the novel threats of nuclear weapons and stand-off missiles compounded the difficulties of naval air defense. The second half of the book covers the U.S. and Royal Navies’ attempts to resolve these problems by examining the U.S. experience in Vietnam and British operations during the Falklands War. The book then turns to the ultimate U.S. development of techniques and technology to fight the Outer Air Battle in the 1980s before concluding with the current state of technology supported carrier fighters. Dr. Friedman has been concerned throughout his career with the way in which policy and technology intersect, in fields as disparate as national missile defence, nuclear strategy, and network-centric warfare. An internationally known strategist and naval historian, he spent more than a decade at a major US think-tank, and another decade as consultant to the Secretary of the Navy. Dr Friedman has written more than 40 books on naval strategy and technology, including an award-winning account of the US Cold War Strategy and histories of British (and Commonwealth) and U.S. aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, and frigates as well as U.S. submarines. He contributes a monthly column on world naval developments to the Naval Institute’s Proceeding magazine and writes articles for journals worldwide. Dr. Friedman holds a PhD.in physics from Columbia University, New York. He lectures widely on defence issues in forums such as the National Defence University, the Naval War College and the Royal United Services Institute. ***** Disclaimer: The views expressed are the speaker's own and may not necessarily reflect the views of the Naval War College, the Department of the Navy, the Department of Defense, or any other branch or agency of the U.S. Government.

The United States navy was not ready for war. It had only a few real warships and a small number of gunboats. It could not hope to defeat the British navy, the most powerful in the world. What the United States planned to do was seize Canada, the British territory to the north. Twenty-five hundred British soldiers guarded the border. And American generals believed they could win an easy victory. They were wrong. An American general named William Hull led 2,000 men across the Canadian border. British soldiers were prepared, and they forced the Americans back. The British fought so well that General Hull surrendered all his men and the city of Detroit. The next American attack was made from Fort Niagara, a military center in New York on the shore of Lake Ontario. A small group of American soldiers crossed the Niagara River and attacked the British. Other Americans state soldiers of New York refused to cross the border to help against the British. They calmly watched as British soldiers shot down the attacking Americans. The third campaign was made by General Henry Dearborn. He led an army of state soldiers from Plattsburgh, New York, to the Canadian border. He was to cross the border and attack Montreal. But the state soldiers again refused to cross the border. Dearborn could do nothing but march them back to Plattsburgh. British forces at this time were winning victories. They captured an American fort in northern Michigan. And Indians fighting for the British captured a fort at the place now known as Chicago. Just two months after the war started, the United States warship Constitution forced a British ship to surrender. Several months later another American ship, the Wasp, captured the British ship Frolic. Then the frigate the United States defeated one of Britain's most famous fighting ships, the Macedonian. The British ship was captured and brought to the United States. There were other victories at sea. At the end of six months, the United States navy had captured six British ships and lost only one of its own vessels. William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana territory, formed a large force to try to capture Detroit from the British. At the same time, Captain Oliver Perry built five warships on Lake Erie. With these and four he already had, Perry met and completely defeated an English naval force. Perry reported his victory to Harrison: "We have met the enemy, and they are ours." Perry's victory and Harrison's large force caused the British to withdraw from Detroit, and from a British fort at Malden, in Canada. Harrison's men continued to chase the enemy. They caught them and defeated them in the battle of the Thames. Killed in this battle was the great Indian chief Tecumseh who had been fighting for the British. About four thousand British soldiers landed on the Chesapeake coast, southeast of Washington. They marched quickly toward the capital. An American general, William Winder, commanded a force two times the size of the British group. Winder was not a good general, and his troops did not defend well. The two sides met at Bladensburg, a town ten kilometers from Washington. The British attacked and at first the American defenders held their ground. But then, British soldiers broke through the American lines, and the Americans began to run away. General Winder ordered his men back to Washington. A group of sailors refused to retreat with their artillery. Commanded by Joshua Barney, the four hundred sailors chose to stand and fight. The struggle did not last long against the four thousand British soldiers. Barney held his position for a half hour before enemy soldiers got behind his men and silenced the guns. The British thought so much of his courage that they carried him to a hospital for their own soldiers at Bladensburg. Barney himself said the British officers treated him as a brother. The commanders of the British force, General Robert Ross and Admiral Sir George Cockburn, took a group of men to the Capitol and set fire to it. Then the two commanders went to the White House to burn it. Before setting fire to the president's home, Cockburn took one of President Madison's hats and the seat from one of Dolley Madison's chairs. The admiral found the president's table ready for dinner. As a joke, he took a glass of wine and toasted the health of "President Jemmy Baltimore port was guarded by Fort McHenry. British warships sailed close to the fort and tried to destroy it with their guns. But the attack did little real damage to the fort. A young American civilian, Francis Scott Key, was aboard one of the British warships during the twenty-five-hour shelling of Fort McHenry. All through the night, the young man watched the shells bursting and the rockets exploding over the fort. In the first light of morning, he saw that the American flag still flew. Francis Scott Key wrote the words of "The Star-Spangled Banner," the national anthem of the United States.

Dr. John Hattendorf and P. Miles Young, "Recreating our Maritime History," Evening Lecture Series, April 28, 2015. This lecture aims to improve the understanding of the importance of our nation’s maritime heritage by studying the recently completed construction of two fully-rigged sailing ships, the “Hermione” and the “Oliver Hazard Perry” and how the ships will be operated in the U.S. and Europe in an educational and training mode. The lecture will consist of four successive presentations: Part 1: A historical retrospective by Dr. John Hattendorf, the Earnest J. King Professor of Maritime History, on the significant contributions made by France to America’s victory in the Revolutionary War. This relationship was the forerunner of the many global maritime partnerships that help maintain free and open seas in the 21st century. (10-minutes) Part 2: A presentation by Mr. P. Miles Young, chairman of the “Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America” on the 17-year long project which has recreated an authentic replica of “L’Hermione” the French frigate that transported Marquis de Lafayette to America in 1780 to offer the assistance of French military forces during the American Revolutionary War. The ship will make an historic Atlantic crossing in April/May 2015 and will make a triumphant tour of a dozen American ports along the eastern seaboard during June and July. The presentation will discuss the construction of the ship using period materials and tools; the anticipated challenges of the Atlantic transit; and the educational legacy to be left in both America and France after the voyage. (30 minutes) Part 3: A historical presentation by Dr. Hattendorf highlighting the contributions of Newport natives Matthew Calbraith Perry and Oliver Hazard Perry, to the operational and technological advancement of the U.S. Navy. Leadership lessons will be drawn from their storied careers in winning the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812, and in conducting several missions to Japan to open the country to western and European nations after centuries of self-imposed isolation. (10 minutes) Part 4: A presentation by Bart Dunbar, Chairman of Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island (OHPRI) the non-profit organization responsible for building the largest fully-rigged sailing ship to be built in America in over a century. The ship, named in honor of the older Perry brother, is a modern interpretation of a classic square-rigged vessel that will serve as the official sail training ship of the State of Rhode Island. Mr. Dunbar will discuss the construction history of the steel-hulled ship, and will show how the OHP will begin its education-at-sea programs in the spring of 2015.

Lincoln Paine, "The Sea and Civilization: A Maritime History of the World" Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, Jan. 16, 2014. Lincoln Paine takes us back to the origins of long-distance migration by sea from Africa and Eurasia to Australia and the Americas. He demonstrates the critical role of maritime trade to the civilizations of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, and the Indus Valley draws upon the examples of the Phoenicians and Greeks, as well as those of India, Southeast and East Asia who parlayed their navigational skills, shipbuilding techniques, and commercial acumen to establish vibrant overseas colonies and trade routes in the centuries leading up to the age of European overseas expansion. ***** Disclaimer: The views expressed are the speaker's own and may not necessarily reflect the views of the Naval War College, the Department of the Navy, the Department of Defense, or any other branch or agency of the U.S. Government.

5 REAL People Screwed By 'TRUE STORY' Movies Based On Them See more: 5 Classic Movies That Have Become Horrifying with Age: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNtYLDUqp_8 16 Steps To Destroy Your Day With Facebook Customer Support: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2hQNciiBeI _____________________ #5. American Hustle -- The Real Irving Rosenfeld's Wife Was A Kind Woman Driven To Suicide What You Saw In The Movie: American Hustle tells the story of lovable con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who finds himself working for the feds to expose political corruption while also handling his wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence), a drunken, cheating, utterly insane bitch from hell -- or in Irving's words, "the Picasso of passive-aggressive karate." But Actually: Names were changed to protect one innocent and a bunch of scumbags, but American Hustle was inspired by the real Operation ABSCAM, in which the FBI used con artist Melvin Weinberg to investigate political figures. Now, he did have a wife in real life, Marie, but she was in truth a dedicated mother and a good woman who felt humiliated by Mel's infidelities and wanted to divorce him. She was essentially the exact opposite of what we saw on screen. #4. Dallas Buyers Club -- The FDA Was Trying To Save Lives What You Saw In The Movie: In Dallas Buyers Club, cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) is diagnosed with AIDS and given only a month to live. So he bribes his way into a clinical trial for AZT, the first HIV/AIDS drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration ... despite the FDA knowing full well that it's toxic to the human body. But Actually: AZT is perfectly safe and does in fact fight HIV ... if you get the dosage right. The problem was that, back then, we still didn't know what the right dosage was, which was why they were doing clinical trials in the first place. As for the drugs Woodroof was getting his hands on, they simply didn't work. We know now that Peptide T is absolutely useless in fighting HIV, while DDC can have even worse side effects than AZT, like irreversible nerve damage in your hands and feet. #3. U-571 Completely Robbed British Sailors Of Their Roles In History What You Saw In The Movie: U-571 tells the story of a daring U.S. Navy crew attempting to hijack a damaged German U-Boat and steal their Enigma Machine. Through pure American bravado, the sailors manage to secure the machine and kill a few dozen Nazis for good measure, before retiring to shoot bullets into steaks and ride bald eagles straight into an exploding fireworks factory. But Actually: The movie was based on a real story: That of the German sub U-110, which was indeed captured ... by British sailors. Shockingly, movie-jacking an important British military victory didn't sit well with the UK. A parliamentarian from Horsforth, a town that raised money for the ship that helped take down U-110, voiced his protests to President Clinton in a personal letter. And, oh yeah, Prime Minister also publicly condemned the film. #2. Foxcatcher -- Mark Schultz Never Had A Gay Relationship With His Brother's Murderer What You Saw In The Movie: Foxcatcher tells the story of two Olympic wrestlers, Mark (Channing Tatum) and David Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), who are invited to train with John du Pont (Steve Carell). Du Pont ends up killing David, partially because he was kind of a nutjob, and partially because he blamed him for driving Mark away. See, it's heavily implied, if not explicitly shown by the movie, that du Pont was a predator who pushed Mark into a sexual relationship. But Actually: The real Mark Schultz served as an advisor on set and asked to have the gay molestation implications cut, because he and du Pont never had that kind of relationship, and he found the inaccuracies insulting. #1. The Imitation Game -- Commander Denniston Was A Brilliant Cryptographer And Alan Turing's Ally What You Saw In The Movie: In The Imitation Game, Commander Alastair Denniston (Charles Dance) reluctantly oversees a project to decipher Germany's Enigma Machine. See, back during World War II, the idea of fighting the enemy with math seemed a bit silly to hardass military men like Denniston. That's why the brilliant mathematician Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) has to all but force his way onto the Enigma team. Denniston has so little faith that he orders Turing's code-breaking machine destroyed But Actually: The real Commander Denniston was a cryptologist himself. During World War I, he worked for Naval Intelligence, helping to break the Zimmermann Telegram (a secret communication between Germany and Mexico), which contributed to the U.S. joining the war effort. _________________________ Thank for Watching!

Chuck Veit, "Sea Miner: The U.S. Navy's Secret Torpedo Program of 1862," Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, Jan. 28, 2016. Based on research on NWC Archives, our first-ever program to develop an automobile torpedo was not at Goat Island in 1869, but in the waters off the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1862-3, and the weapon that almost came out of that project would have immediately made us the most powerful navy in the world. It was actually completed, approved and the orders to get it into production cut; that it was never deployed was a function of the security that surrounded every aspect of the work. ***** Disclaimer: The views expressed are the speaker's own and may not necessarily reflect the views of the Naval War College, the Department of the Navy, the Department of Defense, or any other branch or agency of the U.S. Government.
