In early 1942, the fate of the Allies appeared dire. Germany had conquered most of Western Europe and its armies were deep into Russia. Japan had overrun Manchuria, the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies. They had conquered large swathes of China and destroyed much of the U.S. battle fleet at Pearl Harbor. But the tide of World War II soon turned in favor of the Allies and in this, Allied scientists played a critical role.

Written to develop an appreciation of the role that science played in history, Feiveson shares a comprehensive study of the scientists’ contributions to victory in the war. The chapters covered in the book include the Battle of Britain, the Battle of the Atlantic against German U-Boats, the battle for command of the air, the Allied breaking of the German enigma cipher, D-Day and the Allied invasion of Europe, and the Manhattan Project to develop an atomic bomb.

“Scientists Against Time” appeals to those who have interest in World War II and the impacts of science and mathematics in public policy.
