‘The Imitation Game’ Dramatizes the Story of Alan Turing – NYTimes.com

“Alan Turing, the figure at the center of the already much praised film, “The Imitation Game,” which opens Nov. 28, is probably better known to computer scientists than he is to most moviegoers. Turing, a British mathematician, is now widely credited with helping to develop the theoretical underpinnings for modern computing. He was also a war hero of sorts, largely responsible for cracking the notoriously difficult Enigma code, which the Germans used for virtually all their military communication in World War II. Churchill believed that his was the single biggest contribution to Allied victory.”
