Notes:
Previous edition: published as Britain's secret war. 2011
This title tells the astonishing story of how Britain's intelligence operatives, experts, and special operations teams contributed to the Allies' victory in the Second World War. The work of the Bletchley Park codebreakers in breaking the German Enigma cipher is estimated to have cut the length of the war by around two years, saving countless lives, while the Double Cross system, in which German secret agents were 'turned' by the British to feed their Nazi agent-runners with false information, ensured the success of the D-Day landings. This book not only reveals new details about these remarkable operations but also tells the compelling story of how MI6 turned the disaster of lost networks across Europe into triumph.

Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Shire
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Bletchley Park, known to those who worked there as Station X, was the scene of one of the greatest Allied triumphs of the Second World War: it was here that the Nazi enigma code was broken, providing information that ensured Allied victory in North Africa, the Battle of the Atlantic and, most crucially, the D-Day invasion. Here, Smith depicts the jobs and everyday lives of the 10,000 staff who intercepted and decoded enemy messages.

Book:Shackleton, by endurance we conquer:2015
Author: Smith, Michael
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: The Collins Press
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2014 In 1922 a journalist commented on British tenacity to General Bruce, leader of the British Everest Expedition. Bruce replied with a single word: 'Shackleton'. Ernest Shackleton is one of history's great explorers, an extraordinary Edwardian character who pioneered the path to the South Pole and became a leading figure in Antarctic discovery. His incredible adventures on four expeditions to the Antarctic have captivated generations. A restless adventurer from an Irish background, he joined the Empire's last great endeavour of exploration to reach the South Pole with Scott on the Discovery expedition. A clash with Scott led to Shackleton being ordered home and a bitter feud. This comprehensive biography brings a fresh perspective to the heroic age of Polar exploration dominated by Shackleton's complex, compelling and enduringly fascinating story.
