About this book
Marking the centenary of Turing's birth, this is the fascinating story of the people and projects who developed the first digital computers. Here are tales of electronic wizardry and notable British firsts, told by top historians.
Secret wartime projects in areas such as code-breaking, radar and ballistics produced a wealth of ideas and technologies that kick-started the development of digital computers. This is the story of the people and projects that flourished in the post-war period. Their influence is still discernable deep down within today's hardware and software.
