About the Lecture
Author Norman Fine shares a little-known story about a new invention made on the eve of WWII. Despite apathy and resistance from entrenched military establishments, the invention transformed radar as all the combatants knew it from a defensive tool into an offensive weapon of war. Only the Allies had it, and the enemy was mystified by their losses. Fine’s book won the silver medal for World History in the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards.
