Serves me right for not checking out your blog. On the Jadoul/Beauvechain link, the Belgian resistance is not my area of expertise, but October/November 1940 seems awfully early for an obviously well organised and equipped spy network with links to the RAF.
I'v got to ask. What is this Riddle of the Wooden Bombs?
I have uploaded a cover for The Killing Ground: The British Army, the Western Front, and the Emergence of Modern Warfare, 1900–1918 by Tim Travers. This is from the 1987 Allen & Unwin hardcover edition.
Someone posted a scan from the Pemberton book at the theaerodrome forum. If you want to update the cover...

Thanks. Just trying to give the "heads up" when I can.I know it's saved my bacon more than once.;)
As the only one to rate DF&S I assume you're the only one of us all to have read it!
I liked Myths & Legends of the Great War very much - it covers all sorts of odd byways of WWI history that don't even get mentioned in most histories, let alone in such detail. I'd like to research some of them myself one day ... Very thoroughly documented too. I haven't read his similar book on WWII yet, hopefully it's as good.
Airminded has more books than Rebecca. :)
Yay! Airminded does LibraryThing!
I wasn't expecting one (smirk), though giving an indexing system to an archivist is a lot like giving alcohol to a drunk.
It's all your fault that I got involved in this, seeing as I tripped over this service via your blog!
