The Secret Agent's Pocket Manual: 1939-1945

Hardback
by Bull, Stephen
Most wars have had some element of espionage and subterfuge, but few have included as much as the Second World War, where the all-embracing nature of the conflict, new technology, and the battle of ideologies conspired to make almost everywhere a war zone. The occupation of much of Europe in particular left huge areas that could be exploited. Partisans, spies and saboteurs risked everything in a limbo where...

Hardback
by La Motte, Ellen N.

by Hood Jean
When the bitter conflict of the Second World War drew to a close, Britain quietly busied herself with getting back to normal. As the men returned from the battlefields of Europe, wartime airfields were deserted, pillboxes guarding strategic Stop Lines were abandoned to nature, and jetties for the convoy escorts were left to rot. Their ghosts linger still, criss-crossing the landscape, and much can be learne...
