The story of RADAR told in the context of the people who did it.
This is the story of how RADAR came to be, its pivotal roles not only in the air war, but int the submarine war, and the bombing campaigns of World War 2.
The push to find a warning system for impending air attack,created the modern science of warfare, and laid the ground work for many of the inventions of our modern world.
Highly recommended.
