Talk on the conflicting strategies for the air defense of England during World War II.|THE POLICY CLASH / Charles P. Snow. - SERIES: Science and Government| no. 2. Sir Henry Tizard and F.A. Lindeman (Lord Charwell), former friends, differed sharply over how Britain should defend herself from air attack. Tizard wanted top-priority development of radar while Charwell argued for infra-red detection and "aerial mines". The case for radar won out and Charwell was forced off the committee, but when Churchill became prime minister in 1940, his friend Charwell took over as scientific warlord and Tizard was removed.
