Re: Book recommendation: Most secret war

It has been argued by some historians that the development of radar and everything about it, on both sides of the Atlantic, was far more important to winning the war than the Manhattan Project. I seem to recall reading that I I Rabi, who was in charge of science at the Rad Lab at MIT, felt that the Bomb unfairly overshadowed their work, and when you look at how important microwaves have become today, perhaps he was right.
