    Professor Frederick Lindemann became a trusted advisor to Winston Churchill but did his advice ultimately hinder or help the British then allied war effort?

    Professor of Physics at Oxford and a close friend of Churchill during his 'wilderness years' who during the war became his scientific advisor and Lord Cherwell. From what I've read, didn't get on at all well with Sir Henry Tizard and didn't like any idea unless he had had a part in producing them.
