Description:
(Subject: Aviation - World War II ) The author describes reconnaissance and patrol activities of F Recce Squadron, which was then serving under command of the British 13 Corps, in the later stages of the WWII Italian campaign. He comments on the reaction of the perplexed Italian man in the ranks towards the swift change of enemy and ally brought about by the caprice of a totalitarian regime. The most significant part of his work is that which deals with the efforts of the Italian ex-soldier to adjust himself at once to the environment of peace and democracy.

Description:
(Subject: Aviation - Post World War II ) The Phantom was developed for the US Navy as a long-range all-weather fighter and first flew in May 1958. It became operational in 1961. The US Air Force then realised that the Navy had an aircraft that was far better than any tactical aircraft in their inventory and ordered 543 F-4C variants. There then followed a spate of orders from around the world. In Britain, it was ordered for the Navy and Air Force, but was modified to take the Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan. One of the Royal Navy's Phantoms stole the record for the fastest Atlantic crossing, a record that stood until taken by the remarkable Blackbird.

Description:
(Subject: Intelligence, Espionage, Reconnaissance & Electronic Warfare) Divided loyalties are at the heart of the human dilemma confronting those convicted or charged with treachery. Some traitors were ideological converts who simply wrote autobiographical accounts of their experiences, thereby exposing corruption and totalitarianism. Others deliberately set out to inflict maximum damage in order to destabilize an odious system or organization. Some so-called traitors include German patriots who fled the Nazis, or Soviet intelligence personnel who defected to the West. Did P.G. Wodehouse betray his country? Was the KGB defector Anatoli Golitsyn a geniune political dissident, or merely a shrewd opportunist? Why were the anti-Hitler plotters shunned in post-war Germany?
