Alan Turing's Electronic Brain
Author: B. Jack Copeland

Alan Turing didn't have an electronic brain, but he did try to build one.

This  is a new paperback edition of a book that was first published in hardback 2005 as Alan Turing's Automatic Computing Engine: The Master Codebreaker's Struggle to Build the Modern Computer. As the title of the original version and  the subtitle of  the reprint - The Struggle to Build the ACE, the World's Fastest Computer  - make clear, it is the ACE computer that is the main subject of this book and Alan Turing mostly takes a back seat to the technology.
