Stephen Budiansky, "Blackett's War"
TIME: 7:00 pm
The exciting, little-known story of the small group of British and American scientists who, during the years of 1941 to 1943 (and almost without military experience entirely), revolutionized the way wars are waged and won.
Here presents the civilian intellectualsthe kind that many military men viewed with contempt and helped change the nature of 20th century warfare. Foremost among them was Patrick Blackett: British physicist, ex-naval officer, future Nobel prize winner, ardent socialist who did more to win the war against Nazi Germany than almost anyone else in history.
