This book was prepared from the BBC series of the same name, and it utilizes the graphics and still photographs taken from the TV programs. I found the book to be surprisingly complete, perhaps not as complete as a book devoted to any of the individual topics that are covered, but surprisingly complete for a survey of them. The program and book were prepared in the late 1970’s, which being over 30 years after the events has allowed for some historical perspective, for many secret files to have been opened to the public, and still close enough to the events for participants to still be alive when the TV series and book were being prepared.
The book includes many technical graphics that clearly explain, among other things, the operation of the German Knickebein system for aircraft navigation to targets in the UK, information on the V1 an V2 weapons, and details pertaining to things like 10cm radar, depth charges, and the German Enigma machine. I like the book and recommend it to anyone interested in the technical secrets of WWII.

D Day was a truly electronic war, where technology was matched only by men's courage and the need to free the world of the Nazi menace. This is a great book, which includes information regarding the braking of codes, radar, sonar, and other contermeasures. An excellent read if you are a technical person and enjoy reading about WWII lore and history or just curious about how "radar won the war".
