RADAR may well have saved Britain during World War II. At the outbreak of the conflict, huge towers erected along the nation´s southern coast gave early warning of German planes crossing the Channel, giving beleaguered and outnumbered British pilots a chance to scramble in time to meet the invading aircraft. As important as this contribution was, however, it was just the beginning of RADAR´s role in the war.
BATTLE STATIONS goes into the labs where electronic wizards adapted the infant technology to hundreds of uses, and heads to the battlefront to see the many ways in which it was deployed during the war. Find out how it was accidentally discovered by a researcher trying to develop a death ray, and how it brought women to the front lines for the first time.
From the storied "Radlab" at MIT to the conning towers of submarines in the Pacific, this is the complete story of RADAR in World War II.
