Night Fighters chronicles the historical, technological, tactical and strategic evolution of limited visibility aerial combat between Great Britain and Germany during WW II.

The science developed by both nations assisted in increasing the momentum and lethality of that conflict. This arena of WW II produced a plethora of technological innovations, the results of which are seen today in everyday military and civilian life. This book provides a detailed historical analysis of the men, methods, machines and devices that forever altered the course of aviation and scientific history.
