Passchendaele : requiem for doomed youth
Ham, Paul, author
North Sydney, N.S.W. : William Heinemann, 2016
Passchendaele epitomises everything that was most terrible about the Western Front. The photographs never sleep of this four-month battle, fought from July to November 1917, the worst year of the war- blackened tree stumps rising out of a field of mud, corpses of men and horses drowned in shell holes, terrified soldiers huddled in trenches awaiting the whistle. The intervening century, the most violent in human history, has not disarmed these pictures of their power to shock. At the very least they ask us, on the 100th anniversary of the battle, to see and to try to understand what happened here. Yes, we commemorate the event. Yes, we adorn our breasts with poppies. But have we seen? Have we understood? Have we dared to reason why? What happened at Passchendaele was the expression of the 'wearing-down war', the war of pure attrition at its most spectacular and ferocious. Paul Ham's Passchendaele- Requiem for Doomed Youth shows how ordinary men on both sides endured this constant state of siege, with a very real awareness that they were being gradually, deliberately, wiped out. Yet the men never broke- they went over the top, when ordered, again and again and again. And if they fell dead or wounded, they were casualties in the 'normal wastage', as the commanders described them, of attritional war. Only the soldier's friends at the front knew him as a man, with thoughts and feelings. His family back home knew him as a son, husband or brother, before he had enlisted. By the end of 1917 he was a different creature- his experiences on the Western Front were simply beyond their powers of comprehension. The book tells the story of ordinary men in the grip of a political and military power struggle that determined their fate and has foreshadowed the destiny of the world for a century. Passchendaele lays down a powerful challenge to the idea of war as an inevitable expression of the human will, and examines the culpability of governments and military commanders in a catastrophe that destroyed the best part of a generation.

Écrire en guerre, 1914-1918 : des archives privées aux usages publics
sous la direction de Paule René-Bazin et Philippe Henwood
Rennes : Presses universitaires de Rennes, [2016]
"Nombre de familles, en France et dans les différents pays ayant participé à la Grande Guerre, conservent des archives de cette période. Cent ans après, ces archives privées éveillent la curiosité émue des générations actuelles et retiennent l'attention des historiens. Les auteurs tentent de répondre aux questions suivantes : Qui conserve aujourd'hui ces archives privées : familles, institutions privées, services publics ? En quoi consistent-elles : correspondances, photographies, journaux intimes? Qui furent leurs auteurs : militaires ou civils, hommes de troupes ou officiers, présents au front ou à l'arrière, en France ou dans d'autres pays belligérants ? Quels ont été leurs usages successifs depuis la Guerre jusqu'à aujourd'hui : mémoire familiale, témoignages, publications scientifiques, romans? Les détenteurs d'archives familiales qui s'interrogent sur le sort à réserver aux documents hérités de leurs ancêtres auxquels ils souhaitent rendre hommage y trouveront de nombreuses réponses à leurs questions. Ce livre s'adresse aussi aux étudiants en histoire, aux chercheurs et, plus largement, à tous ceux qui ressentent le besoin d'en savoir plus sur les archives de ce conflit mondial qui a tant marqué notre histoire. Cette publication est issue d'un colloque conjointement organisé par La Société des Amis des Archives de France et les Archives nationales, en partenariat avec la Fondation Singer-Polignac ; il fait partie des événements commémorant le centenaire de la Grande Guerre (1914-1918) et a reçu le label de la "Mission du centenaire", chargée par l'État de coordonner l'ensemble des manifestations sur le territoire national. Les auteurs, français ou étrangers, universitaires ou archivistes, descendants ou non de poilus, sont tous directement impliqués dans l'usage public d'archives privées de la Première Guerre mondiale"--

British intelligence and Hitler's empire in the Soviet Union, 1941-1945
Wheatley, Benjamin William, author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
Prologue: British pre-war policy towards the Soviet Union and the Baltic States, 1917-1941 -- Part I. The restricted services, British covert intelligence and subterfuge in the Baltic States -- Part II. The central role of British open source intelligence in the Ostland -- Part III. Case studies of the FRPS/FORD Baltic States Section's intelligence -- Part IV. Post-hostilities planning.

This is the first detailed study of Britain's open source intelligence (OSINT) operations during the Second World War, showing how accurate and influential OSINT could be and ultimately how those who analysed this intelligence would shape British post-war policy towards the Soviet Union. Following the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, the enemy and neutral press covering the German occupation of the Baltic states offered the British government a vital stream of OSINT covering the entire German East. OSINT was the only form of intelligence available to the British from the Nazi-occupied Soviet Union, due to the Foreign Office suspension of all covert intelligence gathering inside the Soviet Union. The risk of jeopardising the fragile Anglo-Soviet alliance was considered too great to continue covert intelligence operations. In this book, Wheatley primarily examines OSINT acquired by the Stockholm Press Reading Bureau (SPRB) in Sweden and analysed and despatched to the British government by the Foreign Research and Press Service (FRPS) Baltic States Section and its successor, the Foreign Office Research Department (FORD). Shedding light on a neglected area of Second World War intelligence and employing useful case studies of the FRPS/FORD Baltic States Section's Intelligence, British Intelligence and Hitler's Empire in the Soviet Union, 1941-1945 makes a new and important argument which will be of great value to students and scholars of British intelligence history and the Second World War.
