PETER JACKSON & DAVID HAYSOM    Book Number: 87012    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'The Secret Career of Eric Ackermann', here is the career of a man who became a leading figure in the world of signals and electronic intelligence. As a Junior Scientific Officer at the Telecommunication Research Establishment, Boscombe Down, with an honorary commission in the RAF, Eric George Ackermann made numerous flights over occupied territory. He was searching for, monitoring and destroying Germany's Wuerzburg, Knickebein and X Band radar systems. Much of his research was passed to the highest levels of wartime government and was highly prized, ensuring that tactical plans could be executed that took full advantage of known, top secret German intelligence. A host of secret missions to assess the enemy's radar capabilities were carried out in North Africa, Gibraltar and Italy. The biography touches on the vanguard of tactical intelligence operations in these exciting theatres of war. Winner of the George Medal for Conspicuous Gallantry, Ackermann saw the extent to which his findings made a difference. He went on to play a part in setting up and implementing a string of listening stations built along the borders of Soviet Bloc countries gleaning valuable post-war intelligence. Further work in aeronautics and satellite construction in the US followed. He has never been before the subject of a full book-length study to appeal to electronic engineers and aviation enthusiasts. 198pp, photos. Published in association with the Radio Society of Great Britain.

Very difficult reading, I gave up half way through.
The subject should be gripping but failed to address the subject
