Published for the very first time, the top-secret report Some Weaknesses in German Strategy and Organisation 1933-1945 was prepared by Whitehall's highest intelligence body, the Joint Intelligence Committee, and presented to Britain's Chiefs of Staff in 1946 to "set down certain aspects of the War whilst there are still sources available who were closely connected with the events described". Paul Winter sets this unique and important document in its historical setting, providing biographies of key figures referenced in the report and a timeline of the crucial events of the Second World War.
When a catastrophic explosion kills an estimated 30,000 people in the region of southeast New Mexico and surrounding areas, the military is tasked to find out exactly what happened. Six assessment teams are sent into the blast zone to investigate. After a series of devastating military defeats which kills close to 1,000 more, General Pierce finally sends in a unique 4-man team led by Hopper, on a suicide mission to capture one of these mysterious entities. Hopper is the sole survivor.
