Summary
Luftwaffe bombers pounded London, killing and wounding nearly 2,000 civilians and destroying thousands of homes. The Blitz had begun. Winston Churchill , Britain's war time leader, was deeply concerned. Continuous bombing at the civilian population might shatter British moral. He turned to his fighter pilots to save Britain and also to his scientists. Among them was Dr. R. V. Jones . At 29 Reginald Victor Jones was a brilliant young scientist, with the first in Physics from Oxford University. On the outbreak of war in 1939 , he joined the Secret Intelligence Service. He worked in a scientific department devoted to air intelligence. In the summer of 1940 , Jones began to suspect that German bombers were not flying blind, but were being helped by some kind of radio guidance system. All the communications equipment on German bombers shot down had already been minutely examined. This included the Lorenz blind landing sets used at night, or in bad visibility
