The rapid evolution of radio and radar systems for military use during World War II, and devices to counter them, led to a technological battle that neither the Axis nor the Allied powers could afford to lose. The result was a continual series of thrusts, parries and counter-thrusts, as first one side then the other sought to wrest the initiative in the struggle to control the ether. This was a battle fought with strange-sounding weapons: Freya', Mandrel', Boozer' and Window'. It was a battle characterized by the bravery, self-sacrifice and skill of those who took part in it. When it was first published in 1967, Instruments of Darkness came to be regarded as a standard reference work on this intriguing subject.
