Summary
"This book is a coherent account of the history of radar in the Second World War. Although many books have been written on the early days of radar and its role in the war, this book is by far the most comprehensive, covering ground, air and sea operations in all theatres of WWII. Of special interest is extensive new material about the development and use of radar by Germany, Japan, Russia and the British Dominions."--Jacket
