A unique contribution to Churchill scholarship, Downing mines Churchill’s fascination with new technologies, espionage and the “science of war” in the modern age, arguing that Allied victory was due in great part to Churchill’s eagerness for such inventions as radar, innovative methods of decoding secret communications and “bouncing bombs.” This is a mint copy of the First American edition in dust jacket.
