The British Library Publishing Division 2011 0712358439 / 9780712358439 1st Edition Hardcover As New Book 
First edition, SCARCE copy. Maps, Plans and Views at Horse Guards and the War Office 1800-1880. With appendices and index. This comprehensive cartographic history gives an account of the geographic intelligence available to the British army in the nineteenth century. Through nearly 1,600 contemporary maps, plans, views, and drawings, Intelligence Revealed provides, for the first time, an aggregate listing of the cartographic records produced by the Quartermaster General's Office, the Topographical and Statistical Depot (later the Topographical Department), and the Intelligence Branch of the British military. The material presented covers intelligence related to major conflicts, lesser-known wars and actions, expanding colonial and overseas interests, and domestic security concerns. Among the nearly thirty conflicts that are mapped in this book are the Peninsula Campaign, the Crimean War, and the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78. This essential primary resource material for nineteenth-century historians is accompanied by an extensive illustrated introduction that provides a survey of the administrative and institutional context of military mapping at this time.

Birlinn, 2013. 9781843410621 2013 1843410621 / 9781843410621 1st Edition Soft cover Very Good Book 
Paperback in Very Good condition with slightly faded front cover. First edition, ppxviii, 318, b&w illustrations, maps and figures. With notes and index. Between May 1940 and the summer of 1941 the British people expected a German invasion that, had it succeeded, would have enslaved them into the Nazis racist war. This period saw an unparalleled effort to prepare the defence of the UK against invasion. Scotland s nationally important heavy industries, vital Royal Navy bases, and one of the UK s key ports, were very vulnerable to the sort of airborne attack that had devastated the defences of Belgium. Everyone was certain that a Fifth Column of Nazi sympathisers and agents was working actively to spread rumours and despair, and to aid the invasion forces, and in reality the country was far from united. Although the 1939 - 45 War is the most written-about war in history there is no account of the heroic efforts made in those months to prepare Scotland for the inevitable invasion, and how the defences were intended to be used. This book tells that story, against the wider history of the period and its people, and describes what was built, and what now survives. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS MAY BE REQUIRED. S16.

Weidenfeld & Nicolson 2004 0297846353 / 9780297846352 1st Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
Hardcover in Fine condition with Fine dustwrapper. First edition, pp 342, b&w illustrations. Jasper Maskelyne was a world famous magician and illusionist in the 1930s. When war broke out, he volunteered his services to the British Army and was sent to Eygpt where the desert war had just begun. He used his skills to save the vital port of Alexandria from German bombers and to 'hide' the Suez Canal from them. He invented all sorts of camouflage methods to make trucks look like tanks and vice versa. Working for military intelligence, he put on a stage show inside the Royal Palace in Cairo in order to locate an enemy spy's radio transmitter. On Malta he developed 'the world's first portable holes': fake bomb craters used to fool the Germans into thinking they had hit their targets. His war culminated in the brilliant deception plan that won the Battle of El Alamein: the creation of an entire dummy army in the middle of the desert.
