Let us pick out the "scientific war" from the text above and add Stanford University. From here, Hitler got the greatest resistance by the two brothers Sigurd and Russell Varian. These guys collaborated with William W Hanssen. Their work started in 1937 with something that would come to be called "klystron tube" (A klystron is a specialized linear-beam vacuum tube, invented in 1937 by American electrical engineers Russell and Sigurd Varian, which is used as an amplifier for high radio frequencies, from UHF up into the microwave range)
The novel scientific principles that underlie the character of these uncertain technologies and their convergence with political and social institutions reveal conceptual and empirical confusion associated with assessing the national security implications. But they differ with respect to critical socio-political and economic criteria for national prosperity and competitiveness (e.g., demography, research and development [R&D] infrastructure and sustainment, and resource endowments versus dependence). How, when, where, and in what form the shifting nature of technological progress may bring enhanced or entirely new capabilities, many of which are no longer the exclusive domain of the link_up States, is contested and requires better analytical tools to enable U.S. assessment, preparation, and response.
