The problem with eni1. What is the flaw Enigma Has?

The problem with enigma was that when a letter was typed
into the machine, the letter would be matched up with 25 other letters except

how the messaged was encrypted. Alan Turing was able to crack this and continued
to use this information along with a device called ” The Bomb” which
cracked the German messages.

some way to crack the enigma code. This was called “The Bomb” and was
made in Bletchley park in secrecy.gma was that when a letter was typed
