Turing Bombe machines cracked 3,000 messages a day and are said to have shortened the war by two years thanks to the military secrets they uncovered

However, he was not rewarded with honours by the state, or public adulation. Instead he was persecuted because of his homosexuality, opting for chemical castration rather than imprisonment after conviction for gross indecency.
