MI6 Fifty Years of Special Operations
Dorril, Stephen
Fourth Estate UK 2000 
 Hardcover 1.5kgs & 907 Smiley-crisp pp. MI6 is crammed with information for the security service buff and the lay-person alike, and is by turn extraordinary, darkly comical and alarming, but never less than a remarkable insight into a service that operates in our name. To the person in the street, the British secret service conjures up images of the shaken, but never stirred suavity of James Bond. The reality of life inside MI6--the Security Service responsible for British operations outside of the United Kingdom--is a more dark narrative of intrigue and ineptitude, alleges Stephen Dorril, author of this comprehensive and weighty tome. Don't plan to put this on your light reading list, for MI6 is a huge and dense book: 800 pages of text, plus a list of acronyms that runs to six pages and over 60 pages of notes. Dorril begins by observing that "Researching secret agencies--and there are a few more secret than MI6--is obviously a difficult task"; in the light of this he's done an admirable job.

Melbourne University Press Australia 2009 
 Soft Cover A whisker under 500g to post, 358pp In The Mother of Mohammed, Four Corners journalist Sally Neighbour tells the extraordinary story of how a dope-smoking beach bunny from Mudgee, Robyn Hutchinson, became Rabiah-a member of the jihadist elite. Known among her peers as 'the mother of Mohammed', and as 'the Elizabeth Taylor of the jihad' in CIA circles, Rabiah lived for twenty years on the frontlines of the global holy war. With a reputation for tough investigative journalism, Sally Neighbour persuaded Rabiah to tell her story. She investigates how Rabiah became a trusted insider to the Jemaah Islamiyah, Taliban and al Qaeda leaderships, and married a leading figure in Osama bin Laden's inner sanctum. In The Mother of Mohammed Sally Neighbour discovers a world of converts and true believers. This unique and confronting account from inside the jihad helps us to understand the magnetism of the Islamist cause.   Very Good/None issued

The Bomber War the Allied Air Offensive Against Nazi Germany
Neillands, Robin
Overlook USA 2001 1st
 Hardcover This copy ex-UK library but in really great shape apart from a cheap plastic over the dj. An authoritative study of the Allied bombing campaign against Nazi Germany draws on the recollections of British, American, Canadian, and other Allied pilots, as well as on those of German fliers and civilians, to explore the role and effectiveness of the campaign and the moral issues involved. review > This book is a description of the bombing offensive against Germany in WW2. The most fascinating aspect of this book is that it chronicles the problems encountered with long range bombing given the technology and resources that existed at the time. Everything had to be invented from scratch. Navigation, target acquisition, electronic measures and countermeasures, fighters and flack. The book also spends some time on the mostly after the war debate about whether the bombing achieved its goals and whether it was morally right. How the RAF and the AAF learned step by step how to conduct a systematic and effective strategic bombing campaign is the meat of this book and it is very well done. 448pp & approx 1kg packed for post, bw pix midships.  Very Good/Very Good

EC takes a more personal stance towards his subject than is the fashion nowadays. EC writes a study of the rise, fall and organization of the Gestapo. He gives enough detail to horrify but not so much as to get lost in a cloud of prurience. The meticulous creation of evil gives one a sense of numbed unreality.

Delizia! The Epic History of the Italians and Their Food
Dickie, John
Hodder & Stoughton UK 2007 
 Hardcover 800 grammi e 404 pagine (all in inglese), 3 photo sections - Everyone loves Italian food. But how did the Italians come to eat so well? The advertising industry tells us the answer lies in the vineyards and olive groves of Tuscany - among sun-weathered peasants, and mammas serving pasta under the pergola. Yet this nostalgic fantasy has little to do with the real history of Italian cuisine. For a thousand years, Italys cities have been magnets for everything that makes for great eating: ingredients, talent, money, and power. So Italian food is city food, and telling its story means telling the story of the Italians as a people of city dwellers. In Delizia! the author of the acclaimed Cosa Nostra takes a revelatory historical journey through the flavours of Italys cities. From the bustle of Medieval Milan, to the bombast of Fascist Rome; from the pleasure gardens of Renaissance Ferrara, to the putrid alleyways of nineteenth-century Naples. In rich slices of urban life, Delizia! shows how violence and intrigue, as well as taste and creativity, combined to make the worlds favourite cuisine. review >>> Well written and a great read!   Excellent/Very Good

The Best of Signal Hitler’s Wartime Picture Magazine
Mayer, S.L. (ed)
Magna Books UK 1987 
 Hardcover Signal was a magazine published by the German Wehrmacht from 1940 through 1945. Signal was a modern, glossy, illustrated photo journal and army propaganda tool, meant specifically for audiences in neutral, allied, and occupied countries. A German edition was distributed in Switzerland and to various other countries with a strong German military presence, but Signal was never distributed in Germany proper. The promoter of the magazine was the chief of the Wehrmacht propaganda office, Colonel Hasso von Wedel. Signal was published fortnightly (plus some special issues) in as many as 25 editions and 30 languages, and at its height had a circulation of 2,500,000 copies. It was available in the United States in English until December 1941. The magazine also included articles about economics, science, arts, and advertising for the most well-known German companies (BMW, Agfa, Audi, Siemens ...). The contents of the different editions could vary, sometimes avoiding subjects that could upset or worry the population of that country. The magazine kept its independence from the Propaganda Ministry, remaining under control of the army. Still, there is a political message, one of a unified Europe (under the so-called 'New Order') fighting together against the Bolshevism, this idea was symbolized by the different foreign units and volunteers fighting on the German side. dj a bit ruffled at top edge. 1.7 kg to post, unpaginated but approx 300pp packed with illustration.  Very Good/Very Good/Good

The Taste of Britain Foreword By Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
Mason, Laura & Brown, Catherine
HarperPress UK 2006 
 Decorative Cloth 496 snowy-white pp, 1.6kg packed to post. Book was originally issued with a paper band around its tummy, ie no dj. This delightful compendium of Britain’s traditional regional foods combines fascinating local history about the origins of some of our most distinctive and curious foodstuffs with a celebration of the ways in which the most humble cut of meat can embody culinary traditions stretching back through the ages. Far from the bland and stodgy board usually associated with British cuisine, ‘The Taste of Britain’ reveals a culinary portrait of remarkable wealth and character – from Fat Rascals to Fidget Pie, Cornish pasties to Chelsea buns, and Bedfordshire Clangers to Bath Chaps. Entries have been carefully selected on the grounds that they have been produced in one place for more than three generations, and many for much longer: more than merely a history of food, this is a tribute to a Britain that predates the supermarket era and evokes traditions that date back hundreds of years. About the book's development - many EU countries commissioned works to look at their food heritage & when the British one was complete (after a dozen or so years) it languished until taken up by Prospect Books, a small firm specialising in food books , as Traditional Foods of Britain. When a Harper exec spotted a copy in his parent's shelves a re-energising update brought it to fruition, this is that book. A review>>> Fabulous present to get or to give ! and >> In range, warmth and enthusiasm, ‘The Taste of Britain’ is a book for absolutely everyone from the 'foodie' connoisseur interested in the origins of the Careless Gooseberry to the culinary neophyte.  Excellent/None issued

James Holland's ground-breaking account expertly documents the German advance to the stalemate of the Gothic line and a segment of Italian history that has been largely neglected. The war in Italy was the most destructive campaign in the west as the Allies and Germans fought a long, bitter and highly attritional conflict up the mountainous leg of Italy during the last twelve months of the Second World War. For front-line troops, casualties rates at Cassino and then along the notorious Gothic Line were as high as they had been along the Western Front in the First World War. There were further similarities too: blasted landscapes, rain and mud. For the men who fought there, Italy really was the hardest campaign.

The Quest for C Mansfield Cumming and the Founding of the Secret Service
Judd, Alan
Harper UK 1999 
 Hardcover 1 kg, 501 crisp pp, photo section - A fascinating and unique history of the launch of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service through the unusual life of its founder, Mansfield Cumming. Sir Mansfield Cumming, the founder of the British Secret Service and the original ‘C’, has until now been a shadowy figure. For this authorised biography, the Secret Intelligence Service has released to Alan Judd, Cumming’s voluminous diaries, which have never been seen outside the Service, and will be put back into storage in perpetuity when Judd has used them. The result is likely to be the most sensational biography of the season, and the definitive account of how MI5 and MI6 the models for all subsequent secret services all over the world were set up. Cumming signed himself ‘C’, was referred to as such in Whitehall and always used green ink, traditions maintained to this day. His life not only makes riveting reading but casts fascinating light on the development of the Secret Service and its influence on the twentieth century.  Excellent/Excellent/very

Multinational military coalitions have been around since the time of the Peloponnesian War, Canadian military historians Bercuson and Herwig write. But WWII imposed requirements of a novel sort on the coalition that formed between Britain and the U.S.; both Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt knew that "Allied victory would demand that their two nations fight virtually as one," and that forging this unity both on the battlefield and in the production of war materiel was essential. Over a ten-day period around Christmas 1941, the two met in Washington to lay the foundations for what Churchill would dub "the grand alliance."   Very Good/None issued

It was a true Cinderella dress, one the public is joyfully remembering today as they anxiously wait to see if the wedding grown of England's future princess, Kate Middletown who is already known for dressing like Diana at royal events, can surpass it.
