The book reviews some of the technological, political and financial influences, which shaped the air defences of the United Kingdom in the early years of the Cold War. The air defences required a more advanced system of Control and Reporting for the control of ground-to-air guided missiles and for the control of supersonic fighter aircraft against supersonic targets; the system to be known as 'Plan Ahead'. Nuclear ballistic missiles were assessed to be a major threat to the United Kingdom as from 1963 when the large investment in Plan Ahead, for air defence, would be difficult to justify. At the same time, the Government realized that the future requirements for radar cover for air defence and air traffic control were similar. Additionally, both services were moving towards greater efficiency and effectiveness through the use of automation. Accordingly, a joint system of air defence and air traffic control was examined in depth and resulted in the combined system under the names Linesman (Defence) and Mediator (Air Traffic Control).
