Re: Fonthill Media

How will your 100 Group history be different (and presumably better) than Martin Streetly's classic volume?

Well I hope it'll have fewer misprints! "Confound & Destroy" was so bad that I wrote to the publishers and complained that in effect they'd charged £8.95 for an unedited manuscript.

Re: Fonthill Media

But even with all those misprints it was/is a very good book on the WWII electronic warfare. Or maybe I just missed the misprints because of my bad English?

It was certainly a good book and the Public Record Office file references in the back helped get me started doing research there. I still refer to the appendices on the various types of radar etc.

Re: Fonthill Media

I like "digging for hitler"

Are there any other books dealing with 1930's nazi archeology??
