Summary When and how was radar first developed? When was it first employed to direct fighters against approaching enemy aircraft? These two questions began the research from which this book is the result. This is a story that takes place within an Army environment before the beginning of the US Air Force. As the history of radar's research and development unfolds, we will see an Army Signal Corps urgently attempting to develop cutting-edge radar technology. Moreover, as the air defense mission grows, we will see an Army Air Corps struggling to define its new roles and effectively organize itself. This is the story of the beginnings of radar and tactical fighter control.--Provided by publisher.
