No war generated more radical theories, more scientific breakthroughs, more tactical innovations, or more technological leaps than World War II, and in Britain, the drive for these advances came from nowhere more strongly than from Winston Churchill, argues Taylor Downing. The managing director and head of history at Britain's Flashback Television, Downing shows how Churchill's passion for military history, his unique leadership style, and his patronization of radical new ideas fueled an extraordinary outpouring of British genius, whose technological and tactical inventions Downing chronicles here.
