“Blind Bombing: How Microwave Radar Brought the Allies to D-Day and Victory in World War II”

Norman Fine, WWII Historian and Author

Online Only Through Facebook Live and YouTube

Author Norman Fine will share a little-known story about a new invention made on the eve of WWII. Despite apathy and resistance from entrenched military establishments, the invention transformed radar as all the combatants knew it from a defensive tool into an offensive weapon of war. Only the Allies had it, and the enemy was mystified by their losses. Fine’s book, Blind Bombing: How Microwave Radar Brought the Allies to D-Day and Victory in World War II, won the silver medal for World History in the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards.
