Helmut Schreyer describes the development and construction of a model to test the feasibility of an electronic computer. This work was done, in association with the computer pioneer Konrad Zuse, in the isolation of wartime Germany during the period 1941-1943. Schreyer relates the circumstances and events which led up to this project and he comments on the similarity of his basic electronic circuits to those which he subsequently found were used in electronic computers developed elsewhere.
