For those who are interested in German radar, there's a good book:

    David Pritchard, "The Radar War: Germany's Pioneering Achievement
	1904-45", 1989

which covers their systems in some detail. There's also:

    Martin Streetly, "Confound and Destroy: 100 Group and the Bomber
	Support Campaign", 1978

which contains a very interesting chapter about an exercise called "Post
Mortem", run immediately after the close of hostilities, from 25 June to 7
July, 1945, in which the Allies observed (from inside) the workings of the
German air warning network, including things like how well it coped with
various kind of jamming (window, as well as active).
