Alan Turing broke the Enigma code. And he was shamefully treated for winning us the war.

@psBigFanSnotr - Actually not Turing but a Polish named Rajewski broke the Enigma code. Turing made a machine which made it easier but it was later:)

Wanna know how they broke the code?

Why lives saved? People also died in those U-boots.
If nobody would have died then I'd say that lives have been saved.
And by the way, damm where is the rest of this vid? It was very interesting.
