Alan Turing

Alan Turing was a mathematician who created   a machine that helped crack the Germans secret code in WWII.  At the time the Germans were attacking the British on land and in sea.  On sea they hunted British ships using U-Boats to sink the British navy. They communicated in secret code. They used a coding machine called to Enigma that changed the code from word to word. The Allies could not crack this code.

Read the story above and finish it. Tell me how Alan Turing helped solve this problem. At least 10 sentences. Give details and talk about how his life ended.
