STRANGE DEFEAT
by Marc Bloch

First published in 1949, this is 'A Statement of Evidence Written in 1940'. Having returned home from military service following the fall of France, Bloch wrote this manuscript to analyse the military faiures he had witnessed. He concluded that the immediate cause of the disaster was the utter incompetence of the French High command. Having worked with the Resistance since 1942, he was arrested by the Vichy police in March, 1944. They handed him over to the Gestapo who tortured and shot him.

THE PAPERCLIP CONSPIRACY: THE HUNT FOR NAZI SCIENTISTS
by Tom Bower

A documented exposure of the frantic rush at the close of World War II by U.S, Britain and Russia to "hunt down" for their own purposes the Germans who developed the V-2 rocket, the Panzer tank and other remarkable weapons that gave Hitler his early triumphs. Each nation wanted to seize the scientists for itself, and expectations that the scientists would supply advanced technology outweighed possibilities that they might have been (and in many cases were) war criminals. The book's title derives from a secret filing system that identified doctored dossiers of Nazis the military sought: ordinary paperclips were used instead of category names.

MOSCOW 1941: A CITY AND ITS PEOPLE AT WAR
by Rodric Braithwaite

A narrative of 1941 and the Battle of Moscow fought over a territory the size of France. It cost the Russians as many casualties as the British lost in the whole of the World War I And it marked the first strategic defeat the Wehrmacht had suffered in its hitherto unstoppable march across Europe. The book offers verbal portraits of Stalin and his generals, some apparatchiks, some great commanders. It also traces the stories of soldiers, politicians and intellectuals, writers and artists and dancers, workers, schoolchildren and peasants
