The Secret War in Italy Book Summary/Review:

The war in Italy was characterized by a host of Special Forces actions. The fact that the Italians had formed two governments, one backing the Allies and one a puppet German government, meant that the secret war was vital to the Allies conventional forces and partisans, the SAS, SOE, the US OSS (precursor to the CIA) all played important roles. On the night of 20/21 April 1945, the last operational jump of World War 2 took placeAE"Operation Herring. Operation Herring lasted over 72 hours instead of the 36 initially foreseen, but it turned out to be a success. The action did presage the end of the Italian campaign and the war in Italy, but until now little has been written about this, and other secret operations, on the Italian front. It will be an essential reference for students of World War 2.

"The 1939-45 War was a struggle as much between scientists as fighting men. The need, on both sides, to counter the enemy's technological ingenuity was a spur to scientific invention. The BBC1 television programmes looked at six key areas of the 'back-room' secret war. Brian Johnson, who produced the series, has expanded them for his book"--Dust jacket.

U.S. Customs agents worked heroically to stamp out drug smugglers during the 1970s and Andrew Tully, columnist and journalist, was on hand to write it all down. Taken from the closed files of the U.S. Customs Bureau, these good guys and bad guys stories are full of car chases, gun battles, and persistent and savvy agents who lassoed the criminals in the end. Tully's stories were collected when Nixon's drug war model was written into the stone of

Could the British have stopped Manifest Destiny in its tracks in 1836? A Scottish doctor named James Grant was the agent who tried to make it happen, and Texas was the stage on which the secret battle was fought. On the eve of the Texas uprising, only two things stood in the way of American ambitions to reach the Pacific Ocean: the British claim to the Oregon country and the vast but sparsely populated Mexican province of Texas. Britain was therefore

To understand Serbian nationalism requires profound attention to history and careful analysis. Cohen accomplishes both through years of studying primary sources never before translated, focusing on World War II and uncovering the foundations of ethnic cleansing. He argues that the Serbs collaborated with the Nazis in contrast to later Serbian rhetoric that claimed the Serbs were victims, "the thirteenth tribe of Israel." This official duplicity veiled the true objectives of the government to create an ethnically pure homeland. Annotation copyright
