Alan Turing-Who was he???

Alan Turing was one of the first people to 'invent' the idea of the modern day computer. He went to Cambridge University. He did many good things fo technology in his life time. This included building a machine in the second world war that could decipher German codes. He was a truly amazing man.

Unfortunetely,in that time being gay was illegal. He had the choice of being imprisoned or having a sex change. He chose to have a sex change. This is not respectful to him considering that he was one of the people that helped crack the war codes and win the war. Eventually, he committed suicide because he was very depressed in this period of time.
