Text: English, Italian (translation)From School Library Journal:
YA The history of electronic warfare is traced from 1905 when the Tsarist navy was destroyed by the Japanese to present-day research in infrared rays, lasers, satellites for surveillance and data relay systems, radiation weapons, etc. Many charts and maps, along with excellent black-and-white action photos, clarify the text. De Arcangelis describes sea and air electronic countermeasures. Accounts of the U-2, including Powers' flight into Russian territory (and the possible involvement of Lee Harvey Oswald) and other peacetime espionage follow. The Cuban missile crisis, the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, the electronic devices used during the Vietnamese conflict, and the Arab-Israeli wars precede chapters devoted to the history of infrared, lasers, TV, and smart bombs. Descriptions of recent conflicts lead to the final chapter on electronic warfare in space. A listing of abbreviations is extremely helpful. This book provides a wealth of material for research papers in social studies and science as well as an extremely interesting picture of the effects of science on 20th-Century warfare.
