This book contains the diary he kept from 1939 until 1945, recording work in the laboratories and his own wider role in the planning and organisation of the scientific war effort, against the background of the progress of the war problems of members of his staff. A recurring theme is the development and production in the laboratories of more than 300,000 thermionic valves of 45 new types.
