The author shows us develpments of the computer through early efforts during WWII as both experiments and as code-breakers. But during these, it appears Atanasoff has been creating a machine to solve differential equations, and has succeeded. Only towards the end do we realize that other's accomplishments (von Neumann, Turing, and "the first computer") have really had their origins in Atanasoff's ABC machine.
