"The 1939-45 War was a struggle as much between scientists as fighting men. The need, on both sides, to counter the enemy's technological ingenuity was a spur to scientific invention.

The deadly waves ( visu )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
The deadly waves: Although the magnetic mine had been invented by the British in 1917, interest had languished in Britain between the wars, and it was the Germans who were to develop the device to new levels of deadly effectiveness. This is the story of how two naval officers calmly and fearlessly dismantled the first German magnetic mine on a sand bar off Shoeburyness, and reveals how its various successors were discovered and countered by the British. Still secret: There can be no doubt that the best kept secret war was the penetration by British Intelligence of the German codes known as Enigma. To this day the whole story has yet to be told. However, this account, recounted by some of the men and women involved and chiefly shot on location in the actual secret wartime venues, reveals just about all that is known

To see for a hundred miles : The story of wartime radar, and the struggle to keep one step ahead of the enemy, is one of a deadly battle fought in the laboratory and the night skies of Germany: a desperate, silent contest played out at what was then the very frontier of scientific progress. Included in this absorbing account of the radar war are contributions from many of the British and German participants
