Alan Mathison Turing (June 23 1912 - June 7 1954) played a huge role in cracking German codes during WW 2, and founded computer science.
If Alan Turing had never been born, Hitler might’ve won WW 2. Computer science would’ve waited a bit longer for Computable Numbers.
Some general sites and pages about Alan Turing.
He invented the computer as a by-product of ‘On Computable Numbers’, after the war he went on to design pioneering computers and software.

Some are good, some are downright Hollywood lies - like ‘The Imitation Game’.
The Imitation Game: I propose to consider the question, “Can machines think?” This should begin with definitions of the meaning of the terms
You should regard a hidden computer as ‘intelligent’ if you have a conversation with it that makes you believe it might be a human.
If he is to stay at public school, he must aim at becoming educated. If he is to be solely a Scientific Specialist, he is wasting his time..
Alan Turing developed a method for verifying the Riemann hypothesis for the initial zeros. He started building a machine to compute them.
Describes the way in which natural patterns such as stripes, spots and spirals may arise naturally out of a homogeneous, uniform state.
This article set the limits of computer science. It defined the Turing Machine, a model for all computations.
If U-boat Enigma had not been broken, and the war had continued for another 2 or 3 years, several million more people would have died.
“He was found dead, poisoned by an apple laced with cyanide.” THE APPLE WAS NOT TESTED FOR CYANIDE which he used for electrolysis experiment
A Turing machine is an imaginary device that writes symbols on a tape according to a table of rules. It’s a minimal but complete computer.
