The book tells the story of British mathematician Alan Turing, who helped crack Nazi codes for the Allies during World War II. Titled The Imitation Game, the film adaptation will star Benedict Cumberbatch, and Keira Knightley is in talks to costar.
Joan Clarke Murray codebreaker at Bletchley Park during World War II, became deputy head of Hut 8 in 1944. Code breaking was almost exclusively done by men during the war. Clarke was paid less than the men and felt that she was prevented from progressing further because of her gender. She was a English cryptanalyst and numismatist. You have Joan and the women of Bletchley Park to thank for changing the History of the World AND the fact that you’re reading this on a computer!
