Product Description


This is a detailed, professional-level book with ample technical coverage of the various sets, production figures for each model, proper citation of sources, and name and subject indexes. It does an excellent job of reconstructing the company's history despite the passage of time and the wartime loss of records. The photographs of the various radar sets are plentiful and of unusually good quality.
-Tube Collector

This will be an essential text for specialists, and an informative read for those with a general interest in the field.
-Dr. John Beavis, Transmission Lines

If you want to have a well-rounded, complete perspective on the birth and development of radar, GEMA: Birthplace of German Radar and Sonar is essential.
… a very welcome addition to the literature.
-Centaurus, 2001

… the work really is worth reading.
-IEEE AES Systems Magazine

Offers rare technical descriptions as well as information about industrial and scientific cooperation involving secret equipment in Germany before 1945.
-Book News

All in all, the volume is well written, perhaps partly due to Brown's involvement.
-History of Physics Newsletter, Volume VIII, No. 5

A necessary addition Jan. 19 2011
By J. Sullivan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are studying the history of WWII, or of radar, or of the Luftwaffe, this small book is a necessary part of your library. Well done & authoritative but not for kids. Excellent detail photos of large raedar antenna installations.
