This biography details the life of Henry Tizard and his important efforts in integrating science and the military. Using Tizard’s private papers and unfinished autobiography, the author covers Tizard’s work from his early days at Oxford and his service in the Royal Flying Corps in World War I to his death in 1959. He includes Tizard’s efforts to set up radar stations, which later aided England greatly in the Battle of Britain, his encouragement of a good working relationship in weapons development with the United States, and his later political work at Whitehall after the war. He also describes Tizard’s early years, personality, and colleagues, and his participation in the formation of the MAUD Committee, which initiated research on the atomic bomb in England.
