JOE ROCHEFORTS WAR
The Odyssey of the Codebreaker Who Outwitted
Yamamoto at Midway
By Elliot Carlson
Foreword by Rear Adm. Donald Mac Showers, USN
(Ret.)
Naval Institute Press Author of the Year for 2012
Samuel Eliot Morison Book Award for Naval Literature
John Lyman Book Award for Best Naval Biography
Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt Naval History Prize
Farragut Book Award
A Proceedings Notable Naval Book
Now available in paperback, Elliot Carlsons award-winning
biography of Capt. Joe Rochefort is the frst to be written
about the offcer who headed Station Hypo, the U.S. Navys
signals monitoring and cryptographic intelligence unit at
Pearl Harbor, and who broke the Japanese navys code before
the Battle of Midway. The book brings Rochefort to life
as the irreverent, fercely independent, and consequential
offcer that he was. Readers share his frustrations as he
searches in vain for Yamamotos feet prior to the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor, but share his joy when he succeeds
in tracking the feet in early 1942 and breaks the code that
leads Rochefort to believe Yamamotos invasion target is
Midway. His conclusions, bitterly opposed by some top Navy
brass, are credited with making the U.S. victory possible and
helping to change the course of the war. The author tells the
story of how opponents in Washington forced Rocheforts
removal from Station Hypo and denied him the Distinguished
Service Medal recommended by Admiral Nimitz. In
capturing the interplay of policy and personality and the role
played by politics at the highest levels of the Navy, Carlson
reveals a side of the intelligence community seldom seen by
outsiders. A major reinterpretation of Rochefort, the book
makes clear the key role his codebreaking played in the
outcome of Midway.
Elliot Carlson is a longtime journalist who has worked for
such newspapers and magazines as the Honolulu Advertiser
and the Wall Street Journal. His biography of Joe Roche-
fort won the 2012 Samuel Eliot Morison award for naval
literature and the 2011 Roosevelt history prize. He lives in
Silver Spring, MD, with his wife Norma.

MAN OF WAR LIFE
By Charles Nordhoff
Abridged & Edited by Vincent McInerney

In 1844, when barely 14, Charles Nordhoff
managed to talk his way into the U.S. Navy.
He was better educated than most of his
fellow seamen, and was well equipped to
describe what became a three-year around-
the-world adventure. He was lucky in his
ship, USS Columbus, a large 74-gun ship of
the line on a diplomatic mission to China,
and then to Japan, in an abortive attempt to
open the latter to American trade. Nordhoff
visited many countries of south-east Asia
and South America, before fnally returning
to Norfolk, virginia, having crossed the
Equator six times.

BILLY MITCHELLS WAR
WITH THE NAVY
The Interwar Rivalry Over Air Power
By Thomas Wildenberg
When Billy Mitchell returned from WWI, he brought
with him the deep-seated belief that air power had made
navies obsolete. However, in the years following WWI,
the U.S. Congress was far more interested in disarmament
and isolationist policies than in funding national defense.
For the military services this meant lean budgets and
skeleton operating forces. Billy Mitchells War with the
Navy recounts the intense political struggle between the
Army and Navy air arms for the limited resources needed
to defne and establish the role of aviation within their
respective services in the period between the two world
wars.
After Congress rejected the concept of a unifed air service
in 1920, Mitchell and his supporters turned on the Navy,
seeking to substitute the Air Service as the nations frst
line of defense. While Mitchell proved that aircraft could
sink a battleship with the bombing of the Ostfriesland in
1921, he was unable to convince the general Staff of the
Army, the general Board of the Navy, the Secretary of War,
the Secretary of the Navy, or Congress of the need for an
independent air force. When Mitchell turned to the pen to
discredit the Navy, he was convicted by his own words and
actions in a court-martial that captivated the nation, and was
forced to resign in 1925.
Rather than ending the rivalry for air power, Mitchells
resignation set the stage for the ongoing dispute between the
two services in the years immediately before WWII. After
Mitchells resignation, the rivalry for air power between the
two services resurfaced when the Navys plans to procure
torpedo planes for the defense of Pearl Harbor and Coco
Solo were brought to the attention of the Army. The book
concludes with a description of the events surrounding
the Air Corps, abysmal performance at Pearl Harbor and
Midway followed by a critical assessment of how the
development of aviation was pursued by the Army and the
Navy after WWII.
Thomas Wildenberg is an independent historian/scholar
specializing in the development of naval aviation and logis-
tics at sea. He has written extensively about the U.S. Navy
during the interwar period. His articles have appeared in
several scholarly journals including the Journal of Military
History, American Neptune, and Proceedings. He is also the
author of three books on U.S. naval history that cover such
varied topics as replenishment at sea and the development
of dive bombing. Besides All the Factors of Victory and
Destined for Glory, his most recent work, co-authored with
Norman Polmar is Ship Killer: A History of the American

THE CApTAIN FROM CONNECTICuT
The Life and Naval Times of Isaac Hull
By Linda M. Maloney
The Captain from Connecticut is the defnitive biography of the man who
became a national hero as the commander of the USS Constitution in her
dramatic victory over HMS Guerriere in the War of 1812. While Isaac Hulls
outstanding seamanship was in evidence throughout his career, Maloney makes
the case that it is ironic that he is remembered for his tactical prowess in this
famous naval battle, because he was actually the most pacifc of men.
A well-written and scholarly account, this biography traces the life and naval
career of War of 1812 hero Hull. Along with the naval action, the author pays
attention to details of Hulls administrative and diplomatic skills exemplifed by
his role in connection with the Peruvian war of independence. The narrative also
sheds some light on the attitude of naval offcers of the time and the life of the
common seamen. Library Journal.

FAR CHINA STATION
The U.S. Navy in Asian Waters, 18001898
By Robert Erwin Johnson
Far China Station was the frst work to put nineteenth-century American
naval and diplomatic affairs in the Far East into clear perspective. Johnson
examines the origins of the East India Squadron, defnes its import role in the
implementation of foreign policy and describes the dangers routinely faced
by the squadrons ships and sailors. great and gallant ships move through the
pages from the famous Olympia and the majestic Columbus to the plodding
Palos. Naval heroes and the not-so-great, angry mobs, Japanese rebels, leaky
boilers, imperious offcials and infrm admirals are set against a background of
uncertain anchorages, storms at sea, and the ravages of disease in the last years
of the old Navy.

The Battle for Wake Island
By Robert J. Cressman
Soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese land-based bombers pounded
Wake Island, the American advanced base that was key to the U.S. Navys
strategy in the Pacifc. Throughout the next two weeks, the Wake Island
garrison survived nearly daily bombings and repulsed the frst Japanese
attempt to take the atoll. The determined defenders provided a badly needed
lift to American morale. Cressman was the frst to make extensive use of
Japanese materials to identify the enemy order of battle and the roles each
unit played in the drama to provide a moving account of the heroism of the
defenders in the face if tremendous odds.

ANTI-ACCESS WARFARE
Countering A2/AD Strategies
By Sam J. Tangredi
This is the frst book to examine the concept of anti-
access and area denial warfare, providing a defnitive
introduction to both conceptual theories and historical
examples of this strategy. Also referred to by the acronym
A2/AD, anti-access warfare has been identifed in
American strategic planning as the most likely strategy
to be employed by the Peoples Republic of China or by
the Islamic Republic of Iran in any future confict with
the United States. While previous studies of the subject
have emphasized the effects on the joint force and, air
forces in particular, this important new study advances the
understanding of sea power by identifying the naval roots
of the development of the anti-access concept. Rather
than arguing against the reliance on maritime forces
presumably because they are no longer survivable
Tangredi maintains that history argues that maritime
capabilities are key to countering anti-access operations.
The study of anti-access or area denial strategies for
use against American power projection capabilities has
strong naval rootswhich have been largely ignored by
the most infuential commentators. Sustained long-range
power projection is both a unique strength of U.S. military
forces and a requirement for an activist foreign policy
and forward defense. In more recent years, the logic
of the anti-access approach has been identifed by the
Department of Defense as a threat to this U.S. capability
and the joint force.
The conclusions in Anti-Access Warfare differ from
most commentary on anti-access strategy. Rather than
a technology-driven post-Cold War phenomenon, the
anti-access approach has been a routine element of grand
strategy used by strategically weaker powers to confront
stronger powers throughout history. But they have
been largely unsuccessful when confronting a stronger
maritime power. Although high technology weapons
capabilities enhance the threat, they also can be used to
mitigate the threat. Rather than arguing against reliance
on maritime forcespresumably because they are no
longer survivablethe historical analysis argues that
maritime capabilities are key in breaking the great walls
of countries like Iran and China.
Sam J. Tangredi is the Director of San Diego operations for
the planning-consulting frm Strategic Insight and lives in
Coronado, CA. He is the author or editor of three books and

Denying access to an enemy is a natural objective for any
defender, and should be considered an integral component
of any military campaign. However, the terms anti-access
and area denialas currently usedare specifcally meant
to denote a strategic approach intended to defend against an
opponent that is judged to be of superior strength or skill in
overall combat operations.

A FORCE
The Origins of British Deception During the Second World War
By Whitney T. Bendeck
A Force explores an area of World War II deception history that has often

campaign and Britains infamous double-agents, this work explores the
origins of Britains deception activities to reveal how the British became such
masterful deceivers. This is the frst work to focus exclusively on A Force
and the origins of British deception, examining how and why the British
frst employed deception in World War II. More specifcally, it traces the
development of the A Force organization, frst formed in Cairo in 1941, as
the frst British organization to practice both tactical and strategic deception
in the feld.

MILITANT ISLAMIST IDEOLOGY
Understanding the Global Threat
By CDR Youssef H. Aboul-Enein, USN
Foreword by Adm. James Stavridis, USN
In offering a comprehensive explanation of how Militant Islamists have
hijacked the Islamic religion, Aboul-Enein provides a realistic description
of the militant threat, which is far different and distinct from Islamist
political discourse and the wider religion of Islam. A key adviser at the Joint
Intelligence Task Force for Combating Terrorism, he argues that winning the
war against Militant Islamists requires a more complete understanding of
their ideology. Clearly defning the differences between Islam, Islamist, and
Military Islamist, he highlights how militant Islamist ideology takes selected
fragments of Islamic history and theology and weaves them into a narrow,
pseudo-intellectual ideology to justify their violence against Muslims and non-
Muslims alike.
CDR Youssef H. Aboul-Enein, USN, is an offcer in the Navy Medical Service

fessor and Chair of Islamic Studies at the National Defense University. He is

ASIAN MARITIME STRATEGIES
Navigating Troubled Waters
By Bernard D. Cole
Asian Maritime Strategies explores one of the worlds most
complex and dangerous maritime arenas. Asia, stretching
from the Aleutian Islands to the Persian gulf, contains the
worlds busiest trade routes. It is also the scene of numerous
maritime territorial disputes, pirate attacks, and terrorist
threats. In response, the nations of the region are engaged in
a nascent naval arms race. In this new work, Bernard Cole,
author of the acclaimed The Great Wall At Sea, examines
the maritime strategies and naval forces of the regions
nations, as well as evaluating the threats and opportunities
for cooperation at sea. The United States Navy is intimately
involved in these disputes and opportunities, which threaten
vital American economic, political, and security interests.
The most useful geographical designation for maritime
Asia is the Indo-Pacifc and Cole provides both a survey
of the maritime strategies of the primary nations of the
Indo-Pacifc region as well as an evaluation of the domestic
and international politics that drive those strategies. The
United States, Canada, Russia, Japan, North Korea, South
Korea, China, the Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia, vietnam,
Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, India, Pakistan, Iran, the
smaller Indian ocean and Persian gulf states are all surveyed
and analyzed. The United States, Japan, China, and India
draw the most attention, given their large modern navies
and distant strategic reach and the author concludes that
the United States remains the dominant maritime power in
this huge region, despite its lack of a traditionally strong
merchant marine. U.S. maritime power remains paramount,
due primarily to its dominant navy. The Chinese naval
modernization program deservedly receives a good deal of
public attention, but Cole argues that on a day-to-day basis
the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force, as its navy is
named, is the most powerful maritime force in Far Eastern
waters, while the modernizing Indian Navy potentially
dominates the Indian ocean.
Most telling will be whether United States power and focus
remain on the region, while adjusting to continued Chinese
maritime power in a way acceptable to both nations. No other
current or recent work provides such a complete description
of the Indo-Pacifc regions navies and maritime strategies,
while analyzing the current and future impact of those forces.

tional War College in Washington, D.C. Coles previous

by three successive defeats in single-ship duels with U.S. frigates, and
stunned the American nation which had come to expect success. The
near-fatal wound Broke received in hand-to-hand fghting as he boarded
the Chesapeake meant that he never served again at sea, but his work on
naval gunnery, paid for out of his own pocket, transformed Admiralty
thinking and led to the establishment of the British naval school of
gunnery, HMS Excellent. With 2013 the Bicentenary year of his victory,
this work is a reassessment of one of Britains fnest frigate captains.
A fctionalized account of the encounter was used by Patrick oBrian
in his novels The Fortune of War and The Surgeons Mate, with Broke
presented as a cousin of Captain Jack Aubrey.

AT WAR IN DISTANT WATERS
British Colonial Defense in the Great War
By Phillip G. Pattee
At War in Distant Waters investigates the reasons behind great Britains combined
military and naval offensive expeditions outside of Europe during the great War.
often regarded as unnecessary sideshows to the confict waged on the European
continent, Pattee argues that the various campaigns were necessary adjuncts to
the war in Europe, and fulflled an important strategic purpose by protecting
British trade where it was most vulnerable. Since international trade was essential
for the island nations way of life, great Britain required freedom of the seas
to maintain its global trade. While the german High Seas Fleet was a serious
threat to the British coast, forcing the Royal Navy to concentrate in home waters,
the importance of the island empires global trade made it a valuable target to
germanys various commerce raiders, just as Admiral Tirpitzs risk theory had
anticipated.
Phillip G. Pattee, a retired U.S. Navy submarine offcer, is an associate
professor of strategy and military operations at the U.S. Army Command and
Staff College. He has a PhD in military and diplomatic history from Temple
University and lives in Lansing, KS.

NOMONHAN, 1939
The Red Armys Victory That Shaped World War II
By Stuart D. Goldman
Stuart goldman convincingly argues that a little-known,
but intense Soviet-Japanese confict along the Manchurian-
Mongolian frontier at Nomonhan infuenced the outbreak of
World War II and shaped the course of the war. The author
draws on Japanese, Soviet, and western sources to put the
seemingly obscure confictactually a small undeclared
warinto its proper global geo-strategic perspective.
Nomonhan, 1939 describes how the Soviets, in response to
a border confict provoked by Japan, launched an offensive
in August 1939 that wiped out the Japanese forces at
Nomonhan. At the same time, Stalin signed the german-
Soviet Nonaggression Pact, allowing Hitler to invade Poland.
The timing of these military and diplomatic strikes was
not coincidental, according to the author. In forming an
alliance with Hitler that left Tokyo diplomatically isolated,
Stalin succeeded in avoiding a two-front war. He saw the
pact with the Nazis as a way to pit germany against Britain
and France, leaving the Soviet Union on the sidelines to
eventually pick up the spoils from the European confict,
while at the same time giving him a free hand to smash the
Japanese at Nomonhan.
goldman not only demonstrates the linkage between the
Nomonhan confict, the german-Soviet Nonaggression
Pact, and the outbreak of World War II, but also shows how
Nomonhan infuenced Japans decision to go to war with
the United States and thus change the course of history.
The book details gen. georgy Zhukovs brilliant victory at
Nomonhan that led to his command of the Red Army in 1941
and his success in stopping the germans at Moscow with
reinforcements from the Soviet Far East. Such a strategy
was possible, the author contends, only because of Japans
decision not to attack the Soviet Far East but to seize the
oil-rich Dutch East Indies and attack Pearl Harbor instead.
goldman credits Tsuji Masanobu, an infuential Japanese
offcer who instigated the Nomonhan confict and survived
the debacle, with urging his superiors not to take on the
Soviets again in 1941, but instead to go to war with the
United States.

specialist in Russian and Eurasian political and military

THE LuCKY FEW
The Fall of Saigon and the Rescue Mission of the USS Kirk
By Jan K. Herman
As the vietnam War reached its tragic climax in the last days of April 1975,
a task force of U.S. Navy ships cruised off South vietnams coast. The Lucky
Few focuses on the role of USS Kirk in the rescue of not only the remnants of
the South vietnamese feet but also 32,000 refugees feeing from Communist
forces to the safety of the Seventh Fleet ships offshore. Although the vietnam
War ended in chaos and shame, the epic story of USS Kirk and her success in
rendering humanitarian assistance under inconceivable circumstances is one
of Americas shining military involvements. The Lucky Few brings to light
this relatively unknown heroic tale of a people caught up in the death throes
of a nation and their subsequent passage to freedom.
Jan K. Herman served as the Historian of the Navy Medical Department
and Special Assistant to the Surgeon general for 33 years. He also produced

THE uNSEEN WAR
Allied Air Power and the Takedown of Saddam Hussein
By Benjamin S. Lambeth
Foreword by General T. Michael Moseley, USAF (Ret.)
The Unseen War offers a comprehensive assessment of the role of allied air
power in the three weeks of major combat that ended the rule of Iraqs Saddam
Hussein in 2003. Unlike in the earlier operation Desert Storm in 1991, the
contribution of air power in the second war was less readily apparent to most
observers, since the land offensive began concurrently with the air offensive
and the overwhelming majority of the deployed journalists who reported
on the war were embedded with ground units. Lambeths work flls a long-
standing gap in the literature on modern warfare by telling, in full, the story
of the role of air power for the frst time. This book is a RAND Corporation
Research Study sponsored and supported by the commander of U.S. Central
Command Air Forces, who was responsible for planning and conducting the
2003 air offensive.
Benjamin S. Lambeth is a Senior Fellow with the Center for Strategic and
Budgetary Assessments, who spent 37 years at the RAND Corporation. He

THE LIBERTY INCIDENT REVEALED
The Defnitive Account of the 1967 Israeli Attack on
the U.S. Navy Spy Ship
By A Jay Cristol
The Liberty Incident Revealed is the complete and fnal
story about the Israeli Air Force and Navy attack on the
USS Liberty during the Six Day War in June 1967. Cutting
through all of the controversy and conspiracy theories about
Israels deadly attack, Cristol revises his well-regarded book
about the event with an expanded and in-depth analysis of all
of the sources, includingthe released tapes of the National
Security Agency (NSA) intercepts.

When Cristols frst book on the subject, The Liberty


Incident, was published in 2002, there remained many
unanswered questions about Israeli Air Force audio tapes.
The NSA intercepts tapes had not yet been released in 2002.
Some conspiracy theorists alleged the NSA tapes would
prove that the Israeli attack was premeditated. Cristols
successful Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the
NSA, while resulting in the release of those tapes, has been
greeted by anti-Israel sources insisting that the NSA tapes are
fraudulent and are part of a larger conspiracy to deceive the
American public.

After a quarter of a century of intensive research in both Israel


and the U.S., researching all relevant archives from NSA, CIA
and the State Department, reviewing both formerly classifed
and open source documents, and interviewing all then-living
individuals directly involved in the incident, the factual and
documentary record is clear. Cristol maintains that despite
the fact that all of the offcial records and transcripts are now
available for review, the truth has proven to be of no interest
to those individuals and organizations who are motivated by
hidden agendas, wish to keep conspiracy theories alive, or are
trying to feed sensational stories to the media. Documenting
his fndings in six new chapters, Cristol establishes defnitively
that the Israeli attack was a tragic mistake and presents a
convincing argument that will be regarded as the fnal chapter
in the long-simmering debate about this incident.
Capt. A Jay Cristol, USN (Ret.) JD, PhD, entered the U.S.
Navy as an aviation cadet in November 1951. As a naval avia-
tor, he few day and night from the aircraft carrier Princeton
during the Korean confict. Upon return to civilian life, he
joined the Naval Air Reserve where, during the 1960s, he
few volunteer missions to vietnam. He wears the Meritorious
Service Medal, the Navy Commendation Medal, and the Navy
Achievement Medal among his more than a dozen military
decorations. After eighteen years as a naval aviator, he became
a Navy lawyer for another twenty years. In civilian life, he
concurrently practiced civil law for twenty-fve years. He cur-
rently serves as a federal judge and teaches law as an adjunct
professor at the University of Miami. Cristol was named a Le-
gal Legend by the Historical Society of South Florida in 2011.

Langsdorff had to grapple with the enormous

THE SECRET WAR FOR THE
MIDDLE EAST
The Infuence of Axis and Allied Intelligence
Operations during World War II
By Youssef H. Aboul-Enein and Basil Aboul-Enein
Although often overlooked in studies of World War II, the
Middle East was actually a key theater for the Allies on many
levels. Though the threat of direct Axis invasion by Rommels
Afrika Corps never materialized beyond the Egyptian Western
Desert, this did not limit the Axis from probing the Middle East
and cultivating potential collaborators and sympathizers from
Egypt, Iraq and Syria to Persia and Afghanistan. The Secret
War for the Middle East explores the infusion of the political
language of anti-Semitism, nationalism, fascism, and Marxism
that were among the ideological byproducts of Axis and Allied
intervention in the Arab world. The status of the British-
dominated Middle East was tailor-made for exploitation by Axis
intelligence and propaganda. german and Italian intelligence
efforts fueled anti-British resentments; their infuence shaped
the course of Arab nationalist sentiments throughout the Middle
East. These actions left an indelible mark on the socio-political
evolution of the modern states of the Middle East and their
effects continue to be felt today.
A relevant parallel to the pan-Arab cause was Hitlers
attempt to bring ethnic germans into the fold of a greater
german state. In theory, as the Sudeten german stood on par
with the Carpathian german, so too, according to doctrinal
theory and propagandizing, did the Yemeni stand in union
with the Syrian in the imagination of those espousing pan-
Arabism. As an exploration of history demonstrates, this very
commonality proved to be a major factor in the development
of relations between Arab and Fascist leaders. The Arab
nationalist movement amounted to little more than a shapeless,
fragmented, counter position to British imperialism, imported
to the Arab East via Berlin and Rome for Nazi and Italian
fascist aspirations.
CDR Youssef H. Aboul-Enein, USN, is an offcer in the Navy

NAVAL ANTI-AIRCRAFT GuNS AND GuNNERY
By Norman Friedman
This book does for naval anti-aircraft (AA) defense what Friedmans Naval
Firepower did for surface gunneryit makes a highly complex but historically
crucial subject accessible to the layman. It traces the growing aerial threat from its
inception in WWI and the response of each of the major navies down to the end of
WWII, highlighting in particular the underestimated danger from dive-bombing.
The work considers what effective AA fre-control required, and how well each
navys systems actually worked, analyzing the weapons, how they were placed
on ships, and how this refected the tactical concepts of naval AA defense. All
important guns, directors and electronics are represented in close-up photos and
drawings, and lengthy appendices detail their technical data. It is, simply, another
superb contribution to naval technical history by its leading expert.
Norman Freidman is a prominent naval analyst and the author of more than

The Story of a U.S. Navy Intelligence Mission
on the Afghan Border, 1943
By George J. Hill
Proceed to Peshawar is a story of adventure in the Hindu Kush Mountains and
of a previously untold military and naval intelligence mission during World
War II by two American offcers along 800 miles of the Durand Line, the
porous border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. They passed through the
tribal areas and the princely states of the North-West Frontier Province, and
into Baluchistan. This appears to be the frst time that any American offcials
were permitted to travel for any distance along either side of the Durand Line.
Many British political and military offcers believed that India would soon be
free, and that the great game between Russia and Britain in the nineteenth
and early twentieth centuries would then come to an end. Some of them
thought that the United States should, and would, assume Britains role in

The London Naval Conference of 1930
Edited by John H. Maurer and Christopher M. Bell
This volume provides fresh perspectives on the international strategic
environment between the two world wars. At London in 1930, an
important arms control agreement was concluded by the United States,
great Britain and Japan to control the international competition in naval
armaments. In particular, agreement was reached about how many
heavy cruisers the major naval powers could possess. on the surface,
the London Conference was a successthe great powers cooperated
to control their rivalries in armaments. But France and Italy refused to
participate in the treaty, and within a few years growing antagonisms
among the great powers manifested itself in the complete breakdown of
the interwar arms control regime negotiated at London.

John H. Maurer serves as the Alfred Thayer Mahan Professor of Sea Power
and grand Strategy in the Strategy and Policy Department at the Naval War
College. Christopher M. Bell is professor of history at Dalhousie University

CIRCLE OF TREASON
A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men
He Betrayed
By Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille
While there have been other books about Aldrich Ames,
Circle of Treason is the frst account written by CIA agents
who were key members of the CIA team that conducted
the intense Ames Mole Hunt. Sandra grimes and Jeanne
vertefeuille were two of the fve principals of the CIA team
tasked with hunting one of their own and were directly
responsible for identifying Ames as the mole, leading to his
arrest and conviction.
one of the most destructive traitors in American history,
CIA offcer Aldrich Ames provided information to the Soviet
Union that contributed to the deaths of at least ten Soviet
intelligence offcers who spied for the United States. In this
book, the two CIA offcers directly responsible for tracking
down Ames chronicle their involvement in the hunt for a mole.
Considering it their personal mission, grimes and vertefeuille
dedicated themselves to identifying the traitor responsible for
the execution or imprisonment of the Soviet agents with whom
they worked. Their efforts eventually led them to a long-time
acquaintance and coworker in the CIAs Soviet-East European
division and Counterintelligence Center, Aldrich Ames.
Not only is this the frst book to be written by the CIA
principals involved, but it is also the frst to provide details
of the operational contact with the agents Ames betrayed.
The book covers the political aftermath of Amess arrest,
including the Congressional wrath for not identifying him
sooner, the FBI/CIA debriefngs following Amess plea
bargain, and a retrospective of Ames the person and Ames the
spy. It is also the compelling story of two female agents, who
overcame gender barriers and succeeded in bringing Ames
to justice in a male-oriented organization like the CIA. Now
retired from the CIA, grimes and vertefeuille are fnally able
to tell this inside story of the CIAs most notorious traitor and
the men he betrayed.

Sandra V. Grimes was a twenty-six year veteran of CIAs
Clandestine Service who spent the majority of her career
working against the former Soviet Union and Eastern
Europe. She joined the CIA in July 1967 shortly after
graduating from the University of Washington with a de-
gree in Russian. A mother of two grown daughters and four
grandchildren, she currently lives in great Falls, virginia,
with her husband of forty-plus years.
Jeanne Vertefeuille was a CIA offcer during the Cold
War 1954-1992, specializing in the Soviet target, particu-
larly in the Counterintelligence area. She led the small task
force which resulted in the arrest of Soviet mole Aldrich
Ames in 1994. Subsequently she served on contract as an
analyst 1993-present and died just after the publication of
the book in hardcover.

Praise for ciRcLe OF TReASON:
Circle of Treason has the advantage of being written by two
intelligence professionals, not by academics or journalists, and
thus is an authoritative account of the Soviet sources that were
providing the U.S. with invaluable information during the Cold
War until Ames betrayed them. Because classifed material on
operational cases was going to be made public, the CIA took
over three years to approve the books publication. The authors
note that 90% of the disputes were resolved in their favor.
The Wall Street Journal
What makes this volume interesting is that it was written by
longtime CIA insiders, who saw frsthand how the agencys
network inside the Soviet Union crumbled. They write
authentic sketches of agents working for the CIA who were
betrayed by Ames.

FROM THE DREADNOuGHT TO SCApA FLOW
Volume I: The Road to War, 19041914
By Arthur J. Marder
The frst volume in this series covers many facets of the history of
the Royal Navy during the pre-war decade, including the economic
and political background such as the 1906 Liberal government
hostility towards naval spending, the german naval challenge, the
arms race and the subsequent Anglo-german rivalry, and, fnally, the
British plans for the blockade of the german High Seas Fleet.
FROM THE DREADNOuGHT TO SCApA FLOW
Volume II: The War Years: To the Eve of Jutland, 19141916
By Arthur J. Marder
The second volume in the series begins with the embarrassing
escape of the german ship Goeben, before moving on to the defeat
at Coronel, soon avenged off the Falkland Islands. Marder then turns
his attention to the humiliation of the Dardenelles and the submarine
menace, before looking in detail at the whole question of British
strategy and at how the german High Seas Fleet was to brought to
battle at Jutland and dealt a crushing blow.
Arthur J. Marder, a meticulous researcher, teacher and writer was born in 1910. He was a highly regarded American historian specializing in
British naval history in the period 18801945. After serving in the offce of Strategic Services during WWII, he taught at several universities and
was visiting lecturer at Harvard University from 1949 to 1950 and george Eastman Professor at oxford University and fellow of Balliol College,
oxford, from 1969 to 1970. The author of ffteen major works on British naval history, he died in 1980.
Arthur Marders critically acclaimed fve volume series, From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow, represents one of the fnest contributions
to the literature of naval history since the work of Alfred Mahan. These new editions of the series are published with a new introduction by
Barry gough, distinguished Canadian maritime and naval historian, that provide an assessment of the importance of Marders work and
anchors it frmly amongst the great naval narrative histories of this era.
His naval history has a unique fascination. To unrivalled mastery of sources he adds a gift of simple narrative . . . He is beyond praise.

puSHING THE LIMITS
The Remarkable Life and Times of Vice Adm. Allan Rockwell
McCann, USN
By Carl LaVO
vice Admiral Allan Rockwell McCann left no reminiscences that might reveal
a deeper sense of his extraordinary service, but naval historian Carl Lavo has
flled that void by writing this revealingand often inspiringbiography.
Among McCanns many accomplishments: Served as liaison offcer for the
modifcation of the antiquated o-12 submarine into the privately-leased
Nautilus that made the frst attempt to sail beneath the Arctic ice shelf in 1931;
pioneered the McCann Submarine Rescue Chamber; directed fre from the
sub tender Pelias at Japanese aircraft attacking Pearl Harbor; commanded
the battleship Iowa during the Battle of Leyte gulf; was Chief of Staff of the
Navys 10th Fleet that stymied a last ditch effort to attack North America via
U-boats; headed the Navy task force that transported President Truman to the
Potsdam conference; and as ComSubPac was aboard the frst submarine to
navigate under the polar ice in 1947. This book is an overdue appreciation of a
signifcant admiral who has been all but ignored in naval history.

Carl LaVO is the author of three previous books including The Galloping
Ghost: The Extraordinary Life of Submarine Legend Eugene Fluckey. He lives
in Bucks County, PA.

This previously unpublished journal
provides an eyewitness account of the
epic chase of the USS Essex that was
the inspiration for the flm Master &
Commander. In 1813 the British frigate
Phoebe set out on a secret mission to
counter the campaign by the frigate USS
Essex, which had almost annihilated the
lucrative British whaling trade in the south
Pacifc. After an epic voyage and a nerve-
wracking rounding of Cape Horn, Phoebe
tracked her prey to neutral valparaiso
where the American frigate was blockaded.
A cat-and-mouse game that lasted months
ended with an attempted break-out and a
bloody battle in which Essex was captured.

Bringing Your Models to Life

Ship Dioramas is about the art of

are not mounted on an artifcial stand
cry out for a realistic setting. This is the
province of the diorama, which at its
most effective is a depiction of a scene or
an event in which the ship model takes
center stage. This book devotes much of
its space to what works and what does
not, and illustrates with photographic
examples why the best maritime dioramas
have visual power and how to achieve that
impact.

Revolutionary Georgia Fights to Defend Its Waterways, 17761779
By Virginia Steele Wood
During the American Revolution, georgia, the youngest, smallest, weakest,
and most remote colony, was vulnerable to attack from British East Florida,
hostile Indians, loyalists to the west and northwest, and from British naval
ships and privateers cruising along the Atlantic coast. Defense of georgias
segment of the Inland Passage and its many rivers was of paramount concern.
The states galleys, four underwritten by the Continental Congress and built
by Philadelphia shipwrights in Savannah, constituted the states principal
vessels of its small navy. Stoutly constructed, highly maneuverable in confned
waters, and armed with very heavy ordnance, they could outgun many small
blue-water sailing vessels. By drawing upon many long-dormant, unpublished
British documents, Wood provides the frst book written about Revolutionary
georgias navy and casts new light on the neglected contribution of state
navies to the war.
Virginia Steele Wood was the Library of Congress Naval & Maritime His-
tory Reference Librarian for 32 years. Her publications include the award-
winning, Live Oaking: Southern Timber for Tall Ships. She has served on the
Secretary of the Navys Advisory Subcommittee on Naval History, and is a
member of the Board of Directors, Naval Historical Foundation.

NEVER SuRRENDER
Dramatic Escapes from Japanese Prison Camps
By Mark Felton
of the tens of thousands of Allied personnel captured by the Japanese during
late 1941 and early 1942 only a small number attempted to escape rather than
suffer brutality, starvation and very possibly death as PoWs. Escapers were
Westerners in an alien, hostile land; the terrain and climate were extreme;
disease was rife; their physical condition was weak; there was every chance
of starvation and betrayal and, if captured, execution was a near certainty
and the harshest punishment inevitable. While few succeeded these escape
attempts by offcers and men of the British, Commonwealth and U.S. armed
forces offer an inspiring account of the human spirit.
Mark Felton teaches at Fudan University, Shanghai and is the author of The
Slaughter at Sea, Japans Gestapo, and The Real Tenko.

NAVAL INNOVATION FOR THE 21
ST
CENTuRY
The Offce of Naval Research Since the End of the Cold War
By Robert Buderi
The offce of Naval Research, known widely as oNR, was formed in 1946
primarily to support the pursuit of basic science to help ensure future U.S.
naval dominance. After the Cold War, the U.S. entered a period of greater
fscal constraints and the concept of warfare largely shifted from super-power
conficts to an era of asymmetric warfare.
Naval Innovation is a narrative account of oNRs efforts to respond to this
transformation amidst increasing pressure to focus on programs directly
relevant to the Navy, but without sacrifcing the pursuit of fundamental
science. Told through the eyes of the admirals leading oNR and the
department heads who oversee key programs, it holds great lessons and
insights for how the U.S. government should fund and maintain military R&D
in a new era of smaller conficts in unconventional arenas.
Robert Buderi is founder and editor in chief of Xconomy, an online business
news company. Formerly editor in chief of Technology Review magazine and
BusinessWeeks technology editor, he is the author of Guanxi, Engines of Tomor-
row and The Invention That Changed the World. He lives in Cambridge, MA.
