Cryptology, an old and complex science, was from the very beginning composed of different scientific disciplines and used the achievements of other sciences to develop new methods of secure communication. Mathematics, Logic, and Physics are a few out of many sciences that helped develop Cryptology, which in the end lived through its greatest revolution based on modern electrical and mechanical engineering, used to construct the first electromechanical cypher machines that also opened the way to the modern Computer science. The Second World War was the most documented and investigated part of Cryptology's history, and those times have also witnessed the practical implementations of different cryptological theories. Cryptography and cryptanalysis both witnessed great changes during the Second World War period, and the inventions used during that time became the basis of the later advancement of Cryptology. Scientists such as Alan Turing, Arthur Scherbius, Marian Rejewski and William Tutte are just a few of the great people who worked during that period, but without their efforts modern science as a whole would surely not be as great and advanced as it is today.
