I have indeed, it was a few years ago but it still sits on my book shelf as a reference.Have you read Most Secret War by RV Jones? (tbh, I would be very surprised if you had not).
I think part of it is that the British weren't getting the horrific butchers bills from the Eastern Front every month that the Germans were. When you are scrapping the barrel for manpower as hard as the Germans were, all those warm bodies in the Observer Corps look mighty tempting to deploy elsewhere if you can replace them with technology.He makes an almost throwaway comment in there following a discussion with Kammhuber after the way about the different doctrines of radar usage that I found very illuminating - about how the British used radar to effectively increase their figher coverage, whilst the Germans for too long were wedded to the idea of removing their Observor Corps equivalent.
