The author of The Advancing Front of Medicine has written a book chock full of facts about war and what makes it tick. ""Science"" in this sense covers everything from the principles of the earth's turning to the psychological effect of flying on a fighter pilot's nerves. Physics, medicine, biology, psychology, chemistry -- how a submarine works, how a torpedo works, radio's new achievements, everything (within limits of censorship) covered in direct, simple language for the layman. Historical events where they involve the beginnings of science are scattered through the text. A book that today should have wide appeal for all age groups.
