    I mentioned Von Neumann, as a comparison point with Turing, which seems perhaps more apt than your example, since Von Neumann and Turing were both 20th-century mathematicians whose work provided the foundations of modern computing, whereas von Steuben was an 18th-century general.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
