June 23rd will mark the 100th anniversary of the life of famous English mathematician Alan Turing. Ars Technica has a great article that highlights some of vast accomplishments of a man considered to be one of the grandfathers of modern computing.

An excerpt from the article

Turing’s genius played a key role in helping the Allies win the Battle of the Atlantic—a naval blockade against the Third Reich that depended for success on the cracking and re-cracking of Germany’s Enigma cipher. That single espionage victory gave the United States control of the Atlantic shipping lanes, eventually setting the stage for the 1944 invasion of Normandy.
