THE SECRET WAR 1939 -- 45

A fascinating report of the trials of a clandestine world covers the work of the Department of Miscellaneous Weapon Development of the British Admiralty and its attempts to find answers for aircraft defense, underwater controls and invasion needs. Protection against mines, experiments with flame weapons, wire barrages and floating bridges and even prefabricated harbors, are but a few of the projects and the whole has the appeal of the unexpected, in British well-played spirit.
