Summary of the project
Electronics has been playing a role in our daily lives for more than 100 years. Discreet, but it has become omnipresent. It is a new technical environment in which Man expresses his desire to dominate, and therefore his need for protection. The eternal struggle between sword and shield is perpetuated.
Two crows reproduce this endless struggle and attempt to surpass each other. This illustrated book gives the reader a fun way to discover a confrontation that is now taking place in the electromagnetic spectrum. An original approach that gives a new lease of life to the 36 stratagems used for centuries.

Seventy years ago, an Allied crusade landed on the beaches of Normandy to begin the liberation of Europe from the powers of darkness. Today, Guerrelec, the French Chapter of the U.S.-based Association of Old Crows (AOC), is a part of a 50-year old crusade to ensure that a shining light is brought to electronic warfare and more broadly, spectrum warfare, in our nations’ national security concepts, doctrine, tactics, and technology. Many AOC chapters are located in the same nations whose brave military bore such heavy sacrifices on the beaches of France in 1944.
