For sale (collection at Telford)
« on: November 05, 2016, 02:57:37 am »
The secret war, by Max Hastings. 10.

~500 pages, a high-level overview of all sorts of covert activity (espionage, partizans, SIGINT/decryption) and how/if they influenced the war. Some sobering conclusions (many espionage efforts yielded no useful intelligence at all, or conversely weren't acted upon when the intelligence was useful).
