During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of Alan Turing – mathematician, cryptologist and war hero – to investigate a reported burglary. Instead, Turing is arrested on the charge of gross indecency – an accusation that would lead to his conviction for the criminal offence of homosexuality. Little did officials know that were incriminating the pioneer of modern day computing. Leading a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable code of Germany’s Enigma machine in World War II.
