During the Second World War he worked for the government breaking the enemies enigma codes and Churchill said he shortened the war by two years Many people are familiar with what happened to Alan Turing: the national hero and genius of the first order who was prosecuted in 1952 because of his homosexuality, following this conviction and punishment, he apparently killed himself two years later aged only 41. On 24 December 2013, Queen Elizabeth II signed a pardon for Turing's conviction for "gross indecency", with immediate effect.
