Description
 
The atomic bomb may have ended world War II, but in many ways it was radar that won it. Here is the compelling true story of the colorful band of brilliant British & American scientists who converted the cavity magnetron into the potent military weapon which helped to destroy Japanese warships in the Pacific, bring down Nazi buzz bombs & enabled Allied bombers to ‘see’ through cloud cover over Germany. Author Buderi also assesses the post-war technological breakthroughs made by these scientists in many different fields. From the creation of radio astronomy & the discovery of nuclear magnetic resonance to the development of the transistor & the microwave oven, radar & its spin-offs have transformed our daily lives. Black & white illus.
