by Simon Berthon

In reality, his former sponsors were so appalled by him that they kept the Anglo-American invasion of North Africa secret from him.

The book reveals how and why the alliance turned sour, and how de Gaulle took revenge on Britain and America after the war.

WARLORDS THE HEART OF CONFLICT 1939-1945
by Simon Berthon and Joanna Potts

During the Second World War, while their nations fought battles with weapons, the four great warlords of the twentieth century - Hitler, Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt - fought a war of the mind. At its heart was a series of psychological duels in which individual victory was won by deceit, charm, flattery and lies. By using their own words and the words of those who observed them at the time, the book unravels the psychology and tactics of the four wartime leaders and reveals how their political motives, were based on self-interest.

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.
