A very clear and well-written account of the brilliant work done by Blackett and others

A very clear and well-written account of the brilliant work done by Blackett and others, bringing science, logic and sometimes just common sense to some of the intricate problems of winning the war, often fighting against "traditional" approaches favoured by the top brass.
The book is well researched, extremely readable, and gives a good feel for the anxieties and excitement of the times.
The paper and print quality is fine, but the binding leaves something to be desired, particularly the deckle edge: but this is trivial beside the excellence of the read.
