In this time period (from 1938 to 1945), the British decoded
approximately 50,000 messages. While this sounds like an awful lot,
you must consider that over these seven years, an average of two
thousand messages were intercepted each day. Doing the math, this
means that more than five million messages were received. Of this
total, less than one percent were ever read by the British.
