WHEN PROFESSOR R V Jones wrote his memoir ‘Most Secret War’ in 1978, the famous historian A J P Taylor described it as: ‘…the most fascinating book on the Second World War that I have ever read.’ Certainly, at the time of its publication, it was a huge revelation in terms of the scientific defensive countering of the enemy’s technological war which had been waged against Britain. Information not previously generally revealed had suddenly been placed in the public domain, and the importance of work done by the likes of Jones and his colleagues Lindemann, Tizard and Pye in shortening the war became more widely known.
