This document contains the World War II memories of Gardner L. Friedlander.

According to the July 1990 "Smithsonian" magazine, radar had been "in the works" in Germany as early as 1933. Not long after that it started being developed in England, France, Italy, Russia, and the United States. Only England, however, really pushed radar and its practical use. By the time the Nazis were ready to start the blitz of England in July 1940, England had 29 radar stations making an invisible curtain along its southern and eastern coasts.

Editor's note: Gard originally wrote these memoirs in 1990 for his children and grandchildren;  they do not contain descriptions of the violence of the war. The web version of Gard's memoirs was created in April, 2000.
