Kill the huns - Tötet die Hunnen!: Geheimdienste, Propaganda und Subversion hinter den Kulissen des Ersten Weltkrieges [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Helmut Roewer (Autor)
Preis: EUR 19,90

Erscheinungstermin: April 2014

Gebundene Ausgabe: 280 Seiten
Verlag: Stocker; Auflage: 1., Auflage (April 2014)
Sprache: Deutsch
ISBN-10: 390273227X

Subversion und Propaganda
Um die eigene Bevölkerung gegen den deutschen Widersacher aufzubringen und insbesondere auch, um die amerikanische Öffentlichkeit zu beeinflussen, erfand der britische Geheimdienst das Märchen von deutschen Soldaten, die nach dem Einmarsch in Belgien angeblich zahlreichen Kindern die Hände abgehackt und sonstige Gräueltaten verursacht hätten. In der Folge zeichnete die Kriegspropaganda die Deutschen als blutrünstige Hunnen , derer sich die freie Welt zu erwehren hätte. Der Krieg hinter den Kulissen tobte an vielen Fronten. Das Buch geht diesem Untergrundkrieg mit Hilfe von europäischen und amerikanischen Geheimakten auf den Grund.
Schon wenige Monate nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs war es für die Informierten auf beiden Seiten der kriegführenden Nationen klar, dass dieser Krieg militärisch vorerst nicht zu entscheiden war. Nunmehr bemühten sich beide Seiten mit verdeckten, nichtmilitärischen Mitteln den Kriegsverlauf so zu beeinflussen, dass ein militärischer Sieg wieder möglich wurde. So richtete sich das Bestreben darauf, neue Teilnehmer wie die Türkei, Italien, Bulgarien und Rumänien in den Krieg zu ziehen. Die nachhaltigsten Kraftakte in diese Richtung aber galten den USA, und die dort angewandten Mittel reichten bis hin zu Anschlägen. Dabei unterschätzten Deutsche wie Briten die Eigendynamik des Wirtschaftsriesen USA. Diese forderten von ihren neuen Verbündeten einen hohen Preis. Unter dem Strich kostete der Krieg den Briten ihr Weltreich.
Die Deutschen handelten kaum klüger. Sie ließen den Ungeist der Revolution aus der Flasche: Irland, Indien und Russland. Die Wirkungen gingen weit über das Kriegsende hinaus: Der von den Deutschen inszenierte bolschewistische Staatsstreich in St. Petersburg sollte die Welt über Jahrzehnte hinweg in Atem halten.
Von diesen Ereignissen und von den Personen, die sie auslösten, handelt dieses Buch. Scheinbar feststehende Ereignisse wie das Attentat von Sarajevo, deutsche Gräuel in Belgien, die Revolution in Dublin, Sprengstoffanschläge in Kanada und in den USA und die bolschewistische Revolution in St. Petersburg werden auf ihre Hintergründe hin untersucht.

Cicero: The Extraordinary Story of the Highest Paid Secret Agent of the Second World War [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Mark Simmons (Autor)

Preis: EUR 21,91

Gebundene Ausgabe: 192 Seiten
Verlag: The History Press Ltd (2. Juni 2014)
ISBN-10: 0750952865
ISBN-13: 978-0750952866

This is the story of the most successful German spy of World War II, the Albanian Elyesa Bazna - an untrained opportunist. Bazna working as a valet to the British ambassador to Turkey in Ankara. He photographed 'Top Secret' material on critically important policy and military issues, which he sold for vast sums to the Germans. He became the most highly paid spy in history. However he never got to enjoy his ill-gotten gains, for the British banknotes he demanded came from 'Operation Bernhard', the counterfeiting project set up by the SD, the Nazi foreign espionage department. Cicero even stumbled across 'Operation Overlord' code-name for D-Day; but this was not his greatest success. Because of in-fighting between various German departments, full use was never made of the material he provided. Having accessed recently released British Secret Service files - the affair has always been an embarrassment to the British - Mark Simmons brings the same pace and insight to this remarkable story as he did with the best-selling The Rebecca Code.

The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames
Kai Bird (Autor)

ISBN-10: 0307889750

Erscheinungstermin: 20. Mai 2014

The Good Spy is Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kai Bird’s compelling portrait of the remarkable life and death of one of the most important operatives in CIA history – a man who, had he lived, might have helped heal the rift between Arabs and the West.

On April 18, 1983, a bomb exploded outside the American Embassy in Beirut, killing 63 people. The attack was a geopolitical turning point. It marked the beginning of Hezbollah as a political force, but even more important, it eliminated America’s most influential and effective intelligence officer in the Middle East – CIA operative Robert Ames. What set Ames apart from his peers was his extraordinary ability to form deep, meaningful connections with key Arab intelligence figures. Some operatives relied on threats and subterfuge, but Ames worked by building friendships and emphasizing shared values – never more notably than with Yasir Arafat’s charismatic intelligence chief and heir apparent Ali Hassan Salameh (aka “The Red Prince”). Ames’ deepening relationship with Salameh held the potential for a lasting peace. Within a few years, though, both men were killed by assassins, and America’s relations with the Arab world began heading down a path that culminated in 9/11, the War on Terror, and the current fog of mistrust.

Bird, who as a child lived in the Beirut Embassy and knew Ames as a neighbor when he was twelve years old, spent years researching The Good Spy. Not only does the book draw on hours of interviews with Ames’ widow, and quotes from hundreds of Ames’ private letters, it’s woven from interviews with scores of current and former American, Israeli, and Palestinian intelligence officers as well as other players in the Middle East “Great Game.”

What emerges is a masterpiece-level narrative of the making of a CIA officer, a uniquely insightful history of twentieth-century conflict in the Middle East, and an absorbing hour-by-hour account of the Beirut Embassy bombing. Even more impressive, Bird draws on his reporter’s skills to deliver a full dossier on the bombers and expose the shocking truth of where the attack’s mastermind resides today.

Good Hunting: An American Spymaster's Story [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Jack Devine (Autor), Vernon Loeb (Autor)

EUR 18,66

Hardcover: 368 pages
Publisher: Sarah Crichton Books (June 3, 2014)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0374130329
ISBN-13: 978-0374130329

A master class in spycraft from one of its greatest practitioners

Jack Devine is one of the legendary spymasters of our time. He was in Chile when Allende fell; he ran Charlie Wilson’s war in Afghanistan; he had too much to do with Iran-Contra for his own taste, though he tried to stop it; he caught Pablo Escobar in Colombia; he tried to warn George Tenet that there was a bullet coming from Iraq with his name on it. Devine served America’s interests for more than thirty years in a wide range of covert operations, ultimately overseeing the Directorate of Operations, a CIA division that watches over thousands of American covert operatives worldwide.
Good Hunting is his guide to the art of spycraft, told with great wit, candor, and commonsense wisdom. Caricatured by Hollywood, lionized by the right, and pilloried by the left, the CIA remains one of the least understood instruments of the United States government. Devine knows more than almost anyone about the CIA’s vital importance as a tool of American statecraft. Now, as he sees it, the agency is trapped within a larger bureaucracy, losing swaths of turf to the military and, most ominous of all, being transformed into a paramilitary organization. Its capacity to do what it does best has been seriously degraded.
In wonderfully readable prose, Good Hunting aims to set the record straight. This is a revelatory inside look at an organization whose history has not been given its real due.

About the Author
Jack Devine is a thirty-two-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency. He is also a founding partner and the president of the Arkin Group, which specializes in international crisis management, strategic intelligence, investigative research, and business problem solving.

Before Intelligence Failed: British Secret Intelligence on Chemical and Biological Weapons in the Soviet Union, South Africa and Libya: (Intelligence Studies) [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Mark Wilkinson (Autor)

EUR 32,61

Gebundene Ausgabe: 240 Seiten
Verlag: C Hurst & Co Publishers Ltd (1. Mai 2014)
ISBN-10: 1849043000
ISBN-13: 978-1849043007

Kurzbeschreibung
Erscheinungstermin: 1. Mai 2014 | Reihe: Intelligence Studies

In the wake of the 2003 Iraq War, the term 'intelligence failure' became synonymous with the Blair Government and how it had used intelligence to construct a case for war. This book examines British secret intelligence over the thirty years preceding its very public failings. From the Soviet Union to South Africa and Libya, Mark Wilkinson provides a detailed analysis and vivid account of the development and functioning of Britain's intelligence agencies in the struggle against the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons. Based on archival research and interviews with key players in the intelligence establishment, he shows how a handful of chemical and bio- logical weapons experts battled to make their voices heard. They had evidence that illegal weapons development was taking place but were continually rebuffed by adversaries in Whitehall. Fascinating, surprising and some- times shocking, Before Intelligence Failed is a compelling account of what was known about chemical and biological weapons proliferation before the Iraq War.

Mark Wilkinson is an independent consultant specialising in security and risk management. He previously served for sixteen years as a commissioned officer in the British Army, completing his final tour of duty as a bomb disposal officer in Afghanistan in 2010. He has active research interests in terrorism and intelligence.

Kurzbeschreibung
Erscheinungstermin: 29. April 2014
Duncan Chaplain Lee was an unlikely traitor. A Rhodes Scholar, patriot, and descendent of one of America's most distinguished families, he was also a communist sympathizer who used his position as aid to intelligence chief "Wild Bill" Donovan to leak critical information to the Soviets during World War II. As intelligence expert Mark A. Bradley reveals, Lee was one of Stalin's most valuable moles in U.S. intelligence, passing the KGB vital information on everything from the D-Day invasion to America's plans for postwar Europe. Outwitting both J. Edgar Hoover and Senator Joseph McCarthy, he escaped detection again and again, dying a free man before authorities could prove his guilt. A fast-paced cat-and-mouse tale of misguided idealism and high treason, "A Very Principled Boy" draws on thousands of previously unreleased CIA and State Department records to reveal the riveting story of one of the greatest traitors of the twentieth century.

Stalin's American Spy: Noel Field, Allen Dulles and the East European Show-Trials [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Tony Sharp (Autor)
Preis: EUR 25,99


Kurzbeschreibung
Erscheinungstermin: 25. April 2014
Stalin's American Spy tells the remarkable story of Noel Field, a Soviet agent in the US State Department in the mid-1930s. Lured to Prague in May 1949, he was kidnapped and handed over to the Hungarian secret police. Tortured by them and interrogated too by their Soviet superiors, Field's forced 'confessions' were manipulated by Stalin and his East European satraps to launch a devastating series of show-trials that led to the imprisonment and judicial murder of numerous Czechoslovak, German, Polish and Hungarian party members. Yet there were other events in his very strange career that could give rise to the suspicion that Field was an American spy who had infiltrated the Communist movement at the behest of Allen Dulles, the wartime OSS chief in Switzerland who later headed the CIA. Never tried, Field and his wife were imprisoned in Budapest until 1954, then granted political asylum in Hungary, where they lived out their sterile last years. This new biography takes a fresh look at Field's relationship with Dulles, and his role in the Alger Hiss affair. It sheds fresh light upon Soviet espionage in the United States and Field's relationship with Hede Massing, Ignace Reiss and Walter Krivitsky. It also reassesses how the increasingly anti-Semitic East European show-trials were staged and dissects the 'lessons' which Stalin sought to convey through them.

Pressestimmen
'This is the first truly authentic, comprehensive and factual analysis in English of the fascinating life of Noel Field, one of the most mysterious figures on Stalin's chessboard of spies, agents and stooges. The author's gripping account is more than a personal biography of a legendary figure. This book is also essential reading for understanding the world of Stalinist show trials and key chapters of the Cold War in Europe.' - Paul Lendvai, journalist and author of Hungary: Between Democracy and Authoritarianism and Austria: New Challenges, Old Demons 'Stalin's American Spy is a compelling piece of work. It is historically rich, and yet moves along like a novel. Noel Field can be seen as an emblem of the ideology war of the '30s and its lost history. Moving and impressive.' - Robert Dover, author of Learning from the Secret Past: Cases in British Intelligence History 'This is a superb and original book in a much under-researched area. A fine work of history.' - Gerry Hughes, Lecturer in Military History, Aberystwyth University, and author of Britain, Germany and the Cold War: the search for a European Detente, 1949-1967

Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Annie Jacobsen (Autor)
Preis: EUR 21,69
Dieser Artikel wird am 11. Februar 2014 erscheinen.


Kurzbeschreibung
Erscheinungstermin: 11. Februar 2014

The explosive story of America's secret post-WWII science programs, from the author of the New York Times bestseller Area 51

In the chaos following World War II, the U.S. government faced many difficult decisions, including what to do with the Third Reich's scientific minds. These were the brains behind the Nazis' once-indomitable war machine. So began Operation Paperclip, a decades-long, covert project to bring Hitler's scientists and their families to the United States.

Many of these men were accused of war crimes, and others had stood trial at Nuremberg; one was convicted of mass murder and slavery. They were also directly responsible for major advances in rocketry, medical treatments, and the U.S. space program. Was Operation Paperclip a moral outrage, or did it help America win the Cold War?

Drawing on exclusive interviews with dozens of Paperclip family members, colleagues, and interrogators, and with access to German archival documents (including previously unseen papers made available by direct descendants of the Third Reich's ranking members), files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and dossiers discovered in government archives and at Harvard University, Annie Jacobsen follows more than a dozen German scientists through their postwar lives and into a startling, complex, nefarious, and jealously guarded government secret of the twentieth century.

In this definitive, controversial look at one of America's most strategic, and disturbing, government programs, Jacobsen shows just how dark government can get in the name of national security.

Pressestimmen

"As comprehensive as it is critical, this latest expose from Jacobsen is perhaps her most important work to date.... Jacobsen persuasively shows that it in fact happened and aptly frames the dilemma.... Rife with hypocrisy, lies, and deceit, Jacobsen's story explores a conveniently overlooked bit of history." -- Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Annie Jacobsen's Operation Paperclip is a superb investigation, showing how the U.S. government recruited the Nazis' best scientists to work for Uncle Sam on a stunning scale. Sobering and brilliantly researched." -- Alex Kershaw, author of The Liberator

"An engrossing and deeply disturbing exposé that poses ultimate questions of means versus ends." -- Booklist

"Throughout, the author delivers harrowing passages of immorality, duplicity and deception, as well as some decency and lots of high drama. How Dr. Strangelove came to America and thrived, told in graphic detail." -- Kirkus Reviews

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
