Frederick Alexander Lindemann, 1st Viscount Cherwell, was a British physicist and an influential scientific adviser to the British government from the early 1940s to the early 1950s, particularly to Winston Churchill. He advocated the "area" bombing or "strategic bombing" of German cities and civilian homes during the Second World War by falsely stating data to Winston Churchill from a study on the psychological impact of Germany's Birmingham Blitz and Hull Blitz on the local population. He also doubted the sophistication of Nazi Germany's radar technology and the existence of its "V" weapons programme.
