1) Carl L. Norden’s legacy is largely unknown to the public, but his impact on World War II is undeniable. He was a Dutch-born inventor who worked with the US Navy to create the Norden bombsight, an early prototype that allowed planes to accurately drop bombs from high altitudes.
2) Norden was a consummate perfectionist with his work, which meant he was also an absolute nightmare to his employees. He did not care about being rude, but only about doing things right. His nickname was Old Man Dynamite, mostly due to his highly explosive outbursts at work.
