Berlin Airlift : The Effort and the Aircraft : The Greatest Humitarian Airlift in History

By Provan, S. John; Davies, R. E. G.

McLean, VA, U.S.A.: Paladwr Press, 1998. Book contains 80 heavily illustrated pages. The first part of the narrative explores the political and economic circumstances that led to the crisis of May 1948, and it also takes a look at the situation as it probably appeared to the Soviet Union. To have a capitalist enclave within its jealously (and militarily) - guarded sphere of influence must have seemed somthing of an imposition in Muscovite eyes. In addition to pricture-descriptions of all the transport aircraft, U.S. and British, military and civilan, involved in the Airlift, this book has delved into the problems of logistics, on the ground as wella sin the air, and has not forgotten the human aspects, for example, the famous exploits of the Camdy Bomber and the Camel Caravan.

America's Strategic Blunders: Intelligence Analysis and National Security Policy, 1936-1991

By Matthias, Willard C

University Park, PA: Penn State University Press, 2001. 367pp. The book begins with a look back at the role of U. S. intelligence during World War II, from Pearl Harbor through the plot against Hitler and the D-day invasion to the unconditional surrender of Japan, and reveals how better use of the intelligence available could have saved many lives and shortened the war. The following chapters dealing with the Cold War disclose what information and advice U. S. intelligence analysts passed on to policy makers, and also what sometimes bitter policy debates occurred within the Communist camp, concerning Vietnam, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missile crisis, the turmoil in Eastern Europe, the Six-Day and Yom Kippur wars in the Middle East, and the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan. In many ways, this is a story of missed opportunities the U. S. government had to conduct a more responsible foreign policy that could have avoided large losses of life and massive expenditures on arms buildups. Previous owner name crossed out on ffep.
