I grew up in the 1950s and Bernard Lovell was one of my childhood heroes. I've read other books by him and about him and have had the privilege to meet him. This book really does relate how much this one man packed into his life.
This is not entirely surprising, as Mr Bromley-Davenport is a barrister of renown and a celebrated amateur actor and noted producer of Dickens, Sheridan and the rest.
More surprising is the author's remarkable mastery of the then emerging science of radar and related technologies, no doubt enhanced by his charmed relationship with the subject of this biography.
By the end of the book we are left with a warm glow of admiration and affection for Bernard Lovell, a fine man of great courage, scientific intellect and humanity. We feel better about life.
Final praise is that that this is a tale remarkably well told.
This is English writing at its best.
