From advertisement for the 1995 edition: "Fane, commander of Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) One for 13 years, is credited with contributing more to the development of UDT operations and civilian SCUBA than anyone in the United States. In this long-awaited update of his classic blow-by-blow account of UDT operations in World War II and Korea he offers first-hand information and photographs never before available as well as a new chapter that continues the UDT story after the original book's 1956 publication."

Farran, Roy Alexander [Maj.].

Maj. Roy Farran, who died on 1 June 2006, "was one of the most highly decorated soldiers of the Second World War; he was awarded the DSO, three MCs, the Croix de Guerre and the American Legion of Merit." He "wrote a classic account of the desert war and the early years of the Special Air Service." Telegraph (London), 5 Jun. 2006.

Farber, David. Taken Hostage: The Iran Hostage Crisis and America's First Encounter with Radical Islam. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2004.

Ajami, Washington Post, 28 Nov. 2004, notes that the author "believes he has located the anti-Americanism in the lands of Islam, and that we would have fared much better in the intervening years had we taken political Islam 'seriously,' had we recognized it as a 'force in the world.' This is quite a stretch."


Farquhar, John T. A Need to Know: The Role of Air Force Reconnaissance in War Planning, 1945–1953. Maxwell AFB, AL: Air University Press, 2005.

According to May, Air & Space Power Journal 20.1 (Spring 2006), the author "maintains that limitations in US reconnaissance capabilities shaped war planning immediately following World War II. Since the Air Staff was unable to collect sufficient targeting information due to limited strategic reconnaissance, emergency war plans called for dropping atomic bombs on Soviet urban centers." This is "a wonderfully thought-provoking book."

Our thanks are due to the Washington Post and the author for this balanced retelling of the saga of Rose O'Neal Greenhow, a reminder that faithfulness to cause can take many forms.

"A British colonel was bribed with 30lb of gold to hand over three White Russian generals to Soviet Intelligence in 1945, according to files supplied by the KGB defector Vasili Mitrokhin. The revelation will reopen the controversy over one of the most contentious episodes of the Second World War in which the British Army repatriated 70,000 Cossacks, dissidents and their families from Austria back to Stalin's Soviet Union against their will."

This article "challenges the prevalent view that the Kriegsmarine had little interest in intelligence gathering and contends that the naval leadership understood the implications and possibilities" of signal intelligence. "Consequently the Kriegsmarine entered the Second World War with a well-prepared signals intelligence machinery from which it reaped the rewards in the first hlf of the conflict."


Fauth, James J. "Adversary Agent Radios." Studies in Intelligence 10, no. 1 (Winter 1966): 57-67.

Available samples of Communist bloc agent radios "range from crude, handmade, manually keyed transmitters to top-quality production-line automatic high-speed equipment... There is ... a real technical cleavage between the Eastern [Chinese, North Korean, and North Vietnamese] and Western Communist services corresponding to the discrepancy between the respective national technologies." Among the European Communist countries, "Bulgarian and to a degree Polish agent radios ... show an almost elementary approach to design and a handmade quality in thier fabrication."
