The brilliant mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing was just one of several British pioneers whose prototype machines led the way. Turning theory into practice proved tricky, but by 1948 five UK research groups had begun to build practical stored-program computers.

  • Although the Gulf War lasted but a few days, many combat troops have suffered lingering health problems that they attribute to their wartime service. Their health problems and illnesses have features in common with illnesses suffered by veterans of earlier wars, including the difficulty that their physicians have had in making a diagnosis.
