    1. c1998 16 FWFTB radar, Europe,magnetrons, screens and antennae This is a weighty book Not only in terms of content but in actual weight It is 575 pages but it weighs a ton Surprisingly interesting and the technical aspects were well explained Recommended to the boffins within the normal crew To an untrained eye, the path seemed to go all the way to the house, as if providing an access road for radar operators bunked inside.


    2. The atomic bomb ended WWII, but Tesla and Marconi s radio waves, developed into radar, actually won the war for the Allies and laid the basis for the modern electronic world we live in This book documents that history in a very interesting and educational way Great book.


    3. Extensive review of the development of radar during WWII Excellent writing and interesting, but perhaps a bit detailed accounts of personalities etc than I needed.


    4. Buderi presents a definitive account of the development and some of the 20th century applications and extensions of radar In its reach, it outshines circumspect accounts such as Fisher s A Summer Bright and Terrible which focuses on British efforts to develop radar and its application to defense in the Battle of Britain It is my impression that many of the popular histories of radar tend to focus on this aspect of radar in WWII and ignore the importance of the American effort As Buderi himself [...]


    5. Radar, or sending a radio wave in a certain direction, waiting for it to reflect off some object, and judging the distance to the object by the delay and its size by the strength of the echo signal, was invented in Great Britain shortly before World War II It was used by the British during the Battle of Britain and the Blitz to find German bombers, by the Germans in the strategic bombing campaign to find British and American bombers, which themselves used radar to find targets on the ground, by [...]


    6. One of the best books to start one s reading on Radar history Leans a bit towards the US perspective and experience.This focuses on the development of Radar in the US, following the Tizard mission which delivered the cavity magnetron , beginning with a focus on the MIT Rad Lab It covers technology exchanges back and forth between the US UK covering aircraft interception, anti ship anti submarine radar, gun laying radar, and initiatives to guide planes to target destinations in poor weather But, [...]


    7. This book provides a fascinating overview of the development of RADAR among the allies in World War 2 My biggest complaint about the book is that I went into it expecting the book to end with the end of WW2, but it instead spent about half of the book discussing the development of post war applications like radio astronomy If you are interested in the technology and implications of RADAR, this is a fantastic book about the less popular brother of the nuclear bomb project.
