  I note the following
  """
  "Dr Alan Turing was an exceptional man with a brilliant mind," said
  Mr Grayling.

  He said the research Turing carried out during the war at
  Bletchley Park undoubtedly shortened the conflict and saved
  thousands of lives.
  """

  From my research - general (and later president) Eisenhower seemed
  to think that Project Ultra save millions (not thousands) of
  lives, shortened and maybe won the War.
  - Never forget.
