"The Imitation Game" tells a story that needs to be told. It's yet another insightful look into an aspect of World War II and the Greatest Generation.

Alan Turing was certainly one of those, one of the Greatest Generation. Turing and his team of early "gamers" cracked the Nazi Germany Enigma Code.

It's said their success saved some 16 million lives and shortened World War II by two years.

Turing is also credited with inventing, or developing, the first computer, which crunched combinations of letters and numbers to crack the Nazi code.
