July 24, 1939 is the day to be remembered forever. Cryptanalysts and heads of the Intelligence Services from France and Great Britain arrived in Pyry, near Warsaw, to receive the Enigma replicas along with all the cryptanalyst information Poland gathered. Without that, it would take an extra 2 to 3 years to break the Enigma Code. By then, Hitler would be in London.

I doubt that the britts would have needed several years to crack the enigma code. After all, there had been civilan versions of the machine out for years before the war. Arne Buerling certainly didn't need years to crack the Geheimschreiber code, one that was far more "secure" than the Enigma code.
