In the fall of 1940, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered a small team of scientists on a clandestine transatlantic mission to deliver his country's most valuable military secret - a revolutionary radar component - not to the U.S. government, but to a mysterious Wall Street tycoon, Alfred Lee Loomis. Using his connections, his money, and his brilliant scientific mind, Loomis and his team of scientists developed radar technology that would arguably play a more decisive role than any other weapon in the war. The Secret of Tuxedo Park tells a long-overlooked story of an individual who helped alter the course of history in World War II.

Review by Lee on 07/17/20 review stating Knowing the story first hand...
I know the story they tell here will never do my grandfather justice. He was not just an amazing person for what he had done in his life. He was just an amazingly great human being.We need more great people in this world like him. It will be interesting to see if this is accurately portrayed. The book that was written was not highly accurate on many points.
