Pre-War radar

Before the war had even started, there was a unfinished idea of radar, but it was never really finished until people realized during WWI there was no way to stop an airplane from bombing freely, which made people continue their research and eventually they came to a finished product of radar.

Usage of radar during the Battle of the Atlantic

At the beginning of the war Germany had a huge advantage over the U.S when they had the U-Boats because of how hard it was to see them. When the U.S eventually developed radar German U-Boats were easy targets and were pretty much unusable because of the advancements we had. If the U.S did not get the information on radar from Britain the war would of changed drastically. Radar is what killed the U-Boats and is what won us the battle of the Atlantic.

What lost Germany the war

Germany had a huge success with the U-Boats winning most battles against their enemies, except they decided to mass produce the weapons they had, which lead them to be set back with new developments such as radar. The U.S discovered radar very early and perfected it, causing the U-Boats to be obsolete.
