Warriors and Wizards: The Development and Defeat of RADIO-CONTORLLED GLIDE BOMBS of the Third Reich
The amazing history of a new and important technology which helped to turn the tides of war. In August 1943, the Luftwaffe began using radio-controlled antiship glide bombs. These proved very effective, sinking one battleship, crippling another, wrecking two cruisers and destroying numerous merchant ships within just a few weeks. However, a year later the Germans were forced to abandon their use, defeated by scientists who developed electronic systems to jam the radio links that guided the bombs. Drawing on a wealth of new sources, Martin Bollinger examines what happened from both a historical and technological perspective and lays out a mission-by-mission analysis of effectiveness. Based on interviews with participants, intelligence documents, and archival records in four countries, his book chronicles the yearlong battle between the Allied seamen (the warriors) and the scientists (the wizards) for a story of courage, technical achievement, and sacrifice.
