Couple of interesting books?

Recommended Posts


Fresh from the skip, sadly I think a few more have already gone to the incinerator.

Still something is bettter than nothing!

These appear to document low level inteligence gains around 1939, most of it would have been useless at time of publication but I still don't know why they did that as it reveals what you do know and indirectly how you probably knew that?

I wonder who could have bought these books or were they in general circulation?

Its all history, who knows?

Jock :)

Hello Jock.

These documents were unlikely to have been put into wider circulation.

Some of what you picture are documents to support Germany's having been driven into the war after years of smoothing over relations with Poland. The other part describes British documents found during the occupation of Norway putting together some conspiracy that British forces were ready to invade."See, folks we just were quicker than the Plutocrats, here is the proof."

Of note are the handwritten versions, speed of plublication was of the essence.

Jock, I think you found some treasure in which the Bundesarciv or even Imperial War Museum might be interested if they do not already have these documents.

Thanks for showing these.
