I seem to recall that the first successfull rockets were build in germany
by a fellow whose name later became somewhat involved with the american
space program. Lets guess: Could it be Wernher von Braun?

The first working computer ever was built in germany by Konrad Zuse, it
was called the "Z1". Later came the britains with their electronic
monster which they then used to crack german cipher codes. It was a real,
working and programmable computer, as was the Z1 and the Z2. The first
american computer came years later. That one which was used to compute
ballistic curves in the US during the war was not programmable and
therefore does not count as a computer. And even then it was later than
the Z1 and even the Z2
I see that of your "american inventions" none remain which were actually
