This is the story of a genius throttled by British government bureaucracy.

Although gagged for decades by the secrecy of that period, the story can now be told in full and these revelations provide a fascinating insight into the attitudes of the wartime government and military establishment, attitudes that led to one of the geatest inventions of all time being offered freely to those who were to become Britain's main aircraft manufacturing competitors.
