Hamerow, Theodore S. On the Road to the Wolf's Lair: German Resistance to Hitler. Cambridge, MA, and London: Harvard University Press, 1997.

Luft, History 26.2, says that Hamerow's "detailed account of the genesis of the German resistance" portrays "the personalities and opinions of the resistors of 20 July 1944 with amazing nuance." The author's "interpretations are sound," but "no essentially new interpretations are offered."

Hamilton, Dwight, John Thompson, Kostas Rimsa, and Robert Matas. Inside Canadian Intelligence: Exposing the New Realities of Espionage and International Terrorism. Toronto: Dundurn, 2006.

Hamilton, Nigel. Monty: The Battles of Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery. New York: Random House, 1994.

Periscope 19.4: "This is not a book on intelligence, but rather military history in which the role of intelligence becomes increasingly clear."

1. Espionage and Subversion in an Industrialized Society: An Examination and Philosophy of Defense for Management. London: Hutchinson, 1967.

Hamilton's is an early work on a topic -- industrial and economic espionage -- now much more in vogue than when this insightful conceptualization was published.

Hamilton-Hill, Donald. SOE Assignment. London: William Kimber, 1973.

Constantinides: Some of the wartime anecdotes included here "will be of value and interest to those concerned with Balkan affairs during World War II." At the same time, readers may find the author's "grasp of the strategic and diplomatic context of events he relates to be weak."

This was the initial successful launch of an Ofek-1 satellite.


Hamilton-Merritt, Jane. Tragic Mountains: The Hmong, the Americans, and the Secret War in Laos, 1942-1992. Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press, 1993.

Yang, FILS 12.1, sees Tragic Mountains as a "depressing yet accurate tale.... When the last stronghold at Long Chieng fell after a long siege, the Hmong waited for U.S. evacuation planes that never came."

Tovar, IJI&C 8.2 ("B. Hugh Tovar was the Central Intelligence Agency's senior representative in Laos from September 1970 until May 1973."), asks: "What kind of case does Hamilton-Merritt make for [her] fiercely critical review of the American role in Laos? She makes a good one, but there are serious flaws in her presentation. Her primary achievement is to give the Hmong a voice.... To contend, however,... that the U.S. Mission ... forced the action ... and callously exploited Hmong willingness to fight is to misconstrue the way things worked in Laos.... [T]he Lao had reasons of their own for fighting, and those reasons were not always congruent with American interests. The Lao authorities ... shared the decisionmaking and often, in the face of U.S. objections, called the shots on what they wanted done....

"Factual inaccuracies abound, and in the absence of documentation the recollections of her sources have to be taken at face value. Policy issues are treated loosely, if at all.... Operations in central and south Laos are given no attention.... Hamilton-Merritt's use of the word betrayal is too strong.... Despite the upheaval in U.S. policy that accompanied the debacle in South Vietnam, the United States tried hard to cushion its impact on the Hmong."
