Alan Turing is often called the father of modern computing. During World War II, he worked at Bletchley Park, where top secret work was carried out to decipher the military codes used by Germany and its allies. Turing played a pivotal role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to defeat the Nazis in many crucial engagements, and his work was vital in helping the Allies win the war.
Sales of this book support the work of The Turing Trust, the charity set up by Alan Turing's family in his memory to provide much needed computers to schools in Africa. It is introduced by Sir Dermot Turing, the nephew of Alan Turing and trustee of Bletchley Park.
