As modern society reviews the actions of those involved in World War II, most fail to notice the impact of defensive weaponry due to the common knowledge of the nuclear destruction in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. While these attacks were defining moments in the war and in human history, they do not fully encompass the dynamic of the technological exchange that occurred between the Allied forces and those of the Axis. Radar technology had the capacity to be used both defensively and offensively, and by analyzing how each side used radar one can discern the impact of these differing uses. The Allied forces utilized radar technology in a defensive manner, and this discrepancy from the Axis forces is a major contributing factor toward the Allied victory. Defensive weaponry was far more significant than offensive weaponry in truly determining the victor of the second world war.
