Andreas Figl (1873-1967) founded Austrian cryptanalysis in the years before World War I and led it to great successes during that conflict. He wrote a standard work on cryptography that was published in 1926, a study of cryptanalysis that the Austrian government kept from being published, and a memoir of his work during World War I. He was drafted to work for the Nazis during World War II, but only served 18 months.
