Description
Sleek and stealthy flying wings, missiles guided by wire or by television cameras, radars and radar jammers, bombers designed to skip around the world across the upper atmosphere, a 500-foot-long supergun, biological and chemical weapons—Brian Ford catalogs some of the most ingenious, horrific, and misguided inventions of World War II. Some proved highly successful, while others never lived up to expectations, or remained the stuff of science fiction. Ford's heavily illustrated chronicle entertainingly describes them in detail, while also comparing the secret weapon research of 75 years ago with the realities of present-day science and technology.

"British scientist and TV personality Ford pulls back the curtain in this fascinating, accessible study of the weapons and tactics that changed the course of World War II."—Publishers Weekly
