One of the few official histories of World War II to give significant attention to the role of technical intelligence. Provides insights into the importance of technical intelligence in weapons design and also in providing protection against enemy weapons fire. Also reveals something of the organization of the Ordnance Corps for technical intelligence, and describes some of the joint and combined technical intelligence committees that sprang into being. Chapters 7 and 9, dealing with technical intelligence, are of special interest.
