  1. I tried the link for code breaker the answer was. DURING WORLD WAR TWO, THE GERMANS USED A CIPHER MACHINE CALLED THE ENIGMA. IT COULD SEND AND RECEIVE MESSAGES QUICKLY AND SECRETLY. Alan Mathison Turing, OBE, FRS (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was a British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, pioneering computer scientist, mathematical biologist, and marathon and ultra distance runner. He was highly influential in the development of computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of “algorithm” and “computation” with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.

  2. He is such a cool guy i wish i was him.however i could never do that it is just crazy it would make my brain explode!😁Also he did it all so quick it would prombley take my whole life to do that .If he was not a secret he roils have been really famous we would have been like all the sciencetist put together now!😋😱😊😀

  4. The guy was awesome! He single handedly made us win the war in my opinion. If it weren’t for him we would all be speaking German and be saying Hail Hitler!
