Hard to believe

by Forscher on Oct 3, 2013

But one exceptional individual can make an enormous difference in the progress of science and technology, even when opposed by powerful interests intent in safeguarding their parochial turf.. Admiral King and the Paukenschlag operation come immediately to mind as does Hedy Lamar and the torpedo.. The story of Alfred Loomis has been buried for many years. It is well worth reading. We need more such men and can be grateful for those who write their stories. which, in this case, is as much about radar as it is about the atomic bomb.

Alfred Loomis in Tuxedo Park

by Clyde W on Jul 29, 2012

As a person who lived through the Second World War, and as a scientist, I found this well-written book very interesting. The American inventor Alfred Loomis played an important role in the development of radar. I can also recommend another book by Jennet Conant, 109 East Palace, Robert Oppenheimer and the Secret City of Los Alamos.

Tuxedo Park is well worth reading

by SalukiSlew on Jan 10, 2008

A fine peek through the gates into the guilded age of the late 1800s, and up to the atomic bomb in WW II. The author's unique perspective of heritage is not very distracting, and the overall picture is both amazing and enlightening. A worthy addition to my understanding ot that monumental era.
