The main focus of Turing’s work at Bletchley was in cracking the ‘Enigma’ code. CX 12 863143
Enigma was a type of enciphering machine used by the German armed forces to send messages securely.
Although Polish mathematicians had worked out how to read Enigma messages CX 12 863143 and had shared this information with the British,
the Germans increased its security at the outbreak of war by changing the cipher system daily.
This made the task of understanding the code even more difficult.
Turing played a key role in this, inventing – along with fellow code-breaker Gordon Welchman – a machine known as the Bombe.
This device helped to significantly reduce the work of the code-breakers.
Furthermore in mid-1940, German Air Force signals were being read at Bletchley and the intelligence gained from them was helping the war effort.
In July 1942, Turing developed a complex code-breaking technique he named ‘Turingery’.
This method fed into work by others at Bletchley in understanding the ‘Lorenz’ cipher machine.
Lorenz enciphered German strategic messages of high importance: CX 12 863143
Finally the ability of Bletchley to read these contributed greatly to the Allied war effort.

Alan Turing’s life and work did not fully come to light until long after his death.
His impact on computer science has been widely acknowledged: the annual ‘Turing Award’ has been the highest accolade in that industry since 1966.
But the work of Bletchley Park – and Turing’s role there in cracking the Enigma code – was kept secret until the 1970s, and the full story was not known until the 1990s
.As a result that the efforts of Turing and his fellow code-breakers shortened the war by several years.
