A book by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung journalist Udo Ulfkotte, A book by Udo Ulfkotte, a journalist with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitungintended "to boost the standing of Germany's secret service[,] has instead shown up its spies as a bunch of incompetents." Ulfkotte "was given unprecedented access" to BND files. "The book will be all the harder for the German authorities to deal with because it is written in a friendly and innocent tone."

Clark comment: I have no problems with scholars who stray off the beaten path to provide new insights. However, this article flies too far from the known reality without credible evidence to back it up.

Girvin, Brian.

1. The Emergency: Neutral Ireland 1939-45. London: Pan Macmillan, 2006.

White and Riley, Irish Studies in International Affairs 19 (2008), refer to the author's "cynical and occasionally scathing critique" of de Valera. "Analysing Irish neutrality from a political perspective, Girvin suggests that de Valera was backward-looking, myopic and generally intolerant of anything that worked against neutrality."

2. And Geoffrey Roberts, eds. Ireland and the Second World War: Politics, Society and Remembrance. Dublin: Four Courts, 2000.

From publisher: "This volume ... explores the Irish contribution to the Allied cause, in particular the role and experience of Irish men and women who served in the British armed forces.... The history of Northern Ireland during the war is covered, as are aspects of the post-war historiography of Irish involvement in the Allied struggle."


Gisevius, Hans Bernd. To the Bitter End. Tr., Richard Winston. New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1947.

This is the autobiography of the Abwehr officer who served as Allen Dulles' liaison with the anti-Nazi group and was one of the few conspirators to survive the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler. He later testified at the Nuremberg Trials.


Giskes, Herman J. London Calling North Pole. London: Kimber, 1953. New York: British Book Centre, 1953. New York: Bantam, 1982. [pb]

Pforzheimer notes that the author headed the Abwehr's counterintelligence branch in Holland. He tells here the story of a German radio-playback and deception operation based on the capture of a Dutch officer parachuted by SOE into Holland. The operation ran undetected for two years and was used to capture 54 other agents and arms and materials dropped for the Dutch Resistance. For Constantinides, Giskes' version "of the means and imagination employed to win this intelligence victory still stands as the accurate and intriguing account from the German side."
