I was invited to give an online lecture to the World War Two Discussion Forum, which is based in New York and has members across the United States of America.
The audience asked many really great questions and we had a very stimulating and informative discussion following the talk.
I was delighted to highlight several events and aspects from within my book ‘Enemy Sighted’. One of these centred around the ‘magnetron’, a British invention that revolutionised radar and which can be found today in the microwave in your kitchen! Britain shared its most precious secrets with America and this exchange served as a catalyst for Anglo-American collaboration during the Second World War. It laid the foundation for intelligence sharing in what we know today as the ‘special relationship’ between our two countries.
‘Excellent lecture … guy’s really good’
‘So passionate and so knowledgeable on the subject’
‘Wow that was really great.’
