Praise for Stephen Budiansky's Blackett's War. Recommended Reading, Scientific American. Stephen Budiansky is the author of seventeen books about military history, intelligence and espionage, science, the natural world, and other subjects. His most recent books are Code Warriors: NSA’s Codebreakers and the Secret Intelligence War Against the Soviet Union and Mad Music: Charles Ives, the Nostalgic Rebel. The first 140 or so pages of Blackett's War is devoted to a brief outline of British science and politics in the law 19th and early 20thC, and brief biographies of some of the important players, like James Rutherford, Karl Doenitz, and of course Blackett.

From Stephen Budiansky comes the exciting history of a small group of British and American scientists who, during World War II. .

In March 1941, after a year of unbroken and devastating U-boat onslaughts, the British War Cabinet decided to try a new strategy in the foundering naval campaign. To do so, they hired an intensely private, bohemian physicist who was also an ardent socialist.

In March 1941, after a year of unbroken and devastating U-boat onslaughts, the British War Cabinet decided to try a new strategy in the foundering naval campaign. Patrick Blackett was a former navy officer and future winner of the Nobel Prize; he is little remembered today, but he and his fellow scientists did as much to win the war against Nazi Germany as almost anyone else.

The Nazi U-boats devastated Allied shipping during the war. It took a combined effort of convoys, air patrols, statistical analysis, scientific theory and military application to win the war of the Atlantic. Budiansky examines the key personalities and persistent challenges of this Allied effort.

Blackett’s War is decidedly not in the tradition of books on naval warfare by such experts as Samuel Eliot Morison, Stephen Roskill, and others

Blackett’s War is decidedly not in the tradition of books on naval warfare by such experts as Samuel Eliot Morison, Stephen Roskill, and others. There is, in fact, very little in the book having to do with the captains of German submarines or their crews, nor about the Allied sailors and airmen who proved to be their undoing. It is instead the story of a very loosely formed group of brilliant British and American scientists and technicians whose work enabled the Allied navies to eliminate the U-Boats as a threat to Britain’s existence

The exciting history of a small group of British and American scientists who, during World War II, developed the new field of operational research to turn back the tide of German submarines—revolutionizing the way wars are waged and won. In March 1941, after a year of unbroken and devastating U-boat onslaughts, the British War Cabinet decided to try a new strategy in the foundering naval campaign. To do so, they hired an intensely private, bohemian physicist who was also an ardent socialist. Patrick Blackett was a former navy officer and future winner of the Nobel Prize; he is little remembered today, but he and his fellow scientists did as much to win the war against Nazi Germany as almost anyone else. As director of the World War II antisubmarine effort, Blackett used little more than simple mathematics and probability theory—and a steadfast belief in the utility of science—to save the campaign against the U-boat. Employing these insights in unconventional ways, from the washing of mess hall dishes to the color of bomber wings, the Allies went on to win essential victories against Hitler’s Germany. Here is the story of these civilian intellectuals who helped to change the nature of twentieth-century warfare. Throughout, Stephen Budiansky describes how scientists became intimately involved with what had once been the distinct province of military commanders—convincing disbelieving military brass to trust the solutions suggested by their analysis. Budiansky shows that these men above all retained the belief that operational research, and a scientific mentality, could change the world. It’s a belief that has come to fruition with the spread of their tenets to the business and military worlds, and it started in the Battle of the Atlantic, in an attempt to outfight the Germans, but most of all to outwit them.
