Real Lives: ALAN TURING (A& C Black. 2013

alanturing
In 1940 the greatest threat to Britain was the Nazi U-boat fleet. If the country was to survive, it needed to crack Enigma, the unbreakable code used by the Germans.

Alan Turing’s work on Enigma saved millions of lives. He went onto develop the first modern computers and the field of artificial intelligence. But this awkward genius had a secret that would lead to tragedy.
