Synopsis

A fascinating departure for the renowned Science Fiction author, Glide Path is an alternative history of the development of Ground Control Approach radar set during World War II.

Clarke draws upon his own wartime experience as a radar control operator during World War II to tell a story fascinating not just for its plotting-combining science, intrigue, and a host of compelling characters-but also for its prescience and technical insight. Glide Path is sure to be an enthralling read not just for Science Fiction fans, but history aficionados.
