Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, Maryland, 2013, ISBN:9781612512334 
BENDECK, Whitney T. "A" Force : The Origins of British Deception During theSecond World War. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (2013). Fir st Printing. Pp. (4),v-x,1-259,(3).8vo, white paper-covered spine with patterned red paper-covered boards, black lettering to spine. "In June 1940, the Italians declared war on the British in Africa. Out-numbered and unlikelyto receive sizable reinforcements of men or desperately needed supplies, i t is surprising that the British even survived. But necessity is the motherof all invention, so the British got creative. Under the leadership of Gen eral Archibald P. Wavell, the commander in chief of the Middle East, the British set out to greatly exaggerate the size of their forces, supply levels, and state of battle readiness. When their deceitful charades proved successful, Wavell turned trickery into a profession and created an entirely newagency dedicated to carrying out deception. '"A" Force' looks at how and w hy the British first employed deception in World War II. More specifically,it traces the development of the 'A' Force organization, formed in Cairo i n 1941, as the first British organization to practice both tactical and strategic deception in the field. While older studies have focused on the D day deception campaign and Britain's infamous double agents, this work explores the origins of such activities to reveal how the British became such masterful deceivers." - from the dustjacket.

"The Barents Sea, which harbour s the Soviet northern fleet, has been marked by military activity and East-West tension ever since the Second World War. In the early 1980's oil exploration in the Norwegian and Soviet sectors of the Barents Sea introduced a new factor of commercial as well as strategic importance to this area, and it is in the light of this change that this analysis of Soviet energy policy, military interests and needs is made. An assessment is made of the importance of the Barents Sea as an energy option for the Soviet Union, focusingon domestic demand for oil and also the needs of foreign trade, having reg ard to the effects of the Chernobyl disaster. A discussion follows of the conflicting military and civilian interests in the Barents Sea. The authors aim to improve Western understanding of the relationships between Soviet military and civilian interests, and the factors likely to influence Soviet decision makers in this area. This book contains up-to-date topical information, including maps, and an appendix detailing Soviet purchases from abroadof offshore equipment." (from the dj). Contents : 1.

American Institute of Physics, Woodbury, N.Y., 1995, ISBN:1563962586 
BERNSTEIN, Jeremy. Hitler's Uranium Club : The Secret Recordings at Farm Hall. Introduction by David Cassidy. Woodbury, N.Y. : American Institute of Physics, (91995). First Printing. Pp (4),vxxx,1-427,(7),+ 10 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt to spine. "September 1939: The Third Reich launches the first military research effort into the viability of producing atomic weapons. For the project, the Nazis bring together an elite team of German scientists, who call themselves "The Uranium Club." Spring 1945: The war in Europe ends and ten captured members of The Uranium Club are brought to Farm Hall, a safe house run by the British foreign intelligence office. During their six month internment, they talk freely about personal, ethical, scientific, and political matters— while concealed microphones capture everyword. Summer 1945: News of Hitler's defeat and the subsequent events at Hi roshima and Nagasaki astonish the Uranium Ciub scientists; for not only hadGermany been defeated in war-but in science as well. 1992: Transcripts tha t had been classified for nearly half a century are released to the generalpublic. These are the secretly recorded conversations of ten German scient ists—nine of whom had, at the beginning of World War II, tried to bring Germany into the nuclear age. Hitler's Uranium Club contains these official Farm Hall transcripts, expertly annotated by Jeremy Bernstein to make the conversations and their importance accessible to the general reader. He presents the recordings in a rich, insightful context and provides a unique perspective on the scientists' complex, often ambivalent, feelings about their wartime work for the Nazis. He also helps set the record straight once and for all on a highly controversial question: why were the best minds in Hitler's Germany, led by Werner Heisenberg, Paul Harteck, Paul Diebner, and the other Farm Hall detainees, unable to produce a nuclear weapon? For studentsof World War II or the atomic age, or anyone fascinated by the intertwinin g of science and politics, Hitler's Uranium Club provides an opportunity rare in recorded history: the chance to eavesdrop on pivotal figures in history as they complete one era, come to terms with it, and prepare their strategy for the next. As noted science historian David Cassidy writes in his Introduction, "It is as though these men were lifted out of history at a crucial turning point—from the age of conventional weapons to the nuclear era-placed within a timeless container, and told to discuss their past and future as the recorders roll."
