Summary
Tells how Turing's revolutionary ideas laid the foundation for the modern computer, and how he took a leading role in breaking the German Enigma ciphers during World War II, a scientific triumph that was critical to Allied victory in the Atlantic. This is also the tragic account of a man who, despite his wartime service, was arrested and forced to undergo a humiliating treatment program--all for trying to live honestly in a society that defined homosexuality as a crime
