The Battle of the Beams: The Secret Science of Radar

The Fleet Air Arm Museum, BA22 8HT

15 Mar 2024

Description

The radio war of 1939-45 is one of the great scientific battles in history. This is the story of that war.

The Battle of the Beams: The Secret Science of Radar
Relying on first-hand accounts, as well as papers recently released by the Admiralty, The Battle of the Beams fills a huge missing piece in the canon of World War Two literature. It combines history, science, daring do and dogged determination and will appeal as much to fans of WW2 history as to those fascinated by the science behind the beams that changed our lives. In celebration of British Science Week, join Author Tom Whipple as he explore this topic through his book, The Battle of The Beams: The Secret Science of radar that turned the tide of the Second World.
