Most widely held works by David Stafford
Roosevelt and Churchill : men of secrets by David Stafford( Book )
18 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 1,562 libraries worldwide
"The author draws on wartime files only recently released as background for his new work - an intriguing look behind the congenial facade of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, revealing how each jealously guarded knowledge from the other in pursuit of separate national interests." "Theirs was a unique relationship. It was based on linked national histories and partially shared nationality - Churchill was half-American - similarities in class and education, a special love for the navy, and a common belief in the superiority of Anglo-Saxon institutions. But above all, it was cemented by shared enemies: Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. On these foundations Roosevelt and Churchill constructed a fighting alliance unlike any other in history. Each in his own way had to deal with two other allies of stature - Joseph Stalin and Charles de Gaulle - whose agendas were certainly different again." "Roosevelt and Churchill also developed an extraordinary personal relationship, communicating almost daily by telegram, telephone, meetings, or contact through intermediaries. Their complicated camaraderie - which was always dynamic - ended abruptly with FDR's death on April 12, 1945, just hours before American and British troops liberated Buchenwald and Belsen."--Jacket

"In June 1940 Britain was driven from the continent by Hitler's conquering armies. As the British stared invasion in the face, a group of unconventional warriors planned a new form of warfare, and the Special Operations Executive was born. With a brief from Winston Churchill to "set Europe ablaze," this top-secret agency was given the dangerous task of coordinating subversion and sabotage against the enemy by all means necessary - using disguise, deception, bribery, explosives (sometimes disguised inside objects such as a dead rat or a chianti bottle), guerrilla warfare, and even assassination."

Mission accomplished : SOE and Italy 1943-1945 by David Stafford( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
In May 1945 Italy was liberated from Nazism and Fascism by the British Eighth and American Fifth Armies. By that time the Italian resistance movement had emerged as one of the strongest in Europe - crucially aided and abetted by the UK's Special Operations Executive. As what Winston Churchill graphically described as the 'red-hot rake of the battle-line' advanced bloodily up the Italian peninsula, clandestine cells in the cities and partisan bands in the countryside fought to free their country from enemy occupation and shape the politics of Italy's post-war future. SOE in Italy, known as No. 1 Special Force, parachuted in dozens of missions to supply the underground with weapons and ammunition, food and supplies. In a remarkable twist it also secretly collaborated with its former enemy, the Italian military intelligence service, and with the Italian navy, which used fast torpedo boats and rubber dinghies to land British agents on heavily defended beaches

Spies beneath Berlin by David Stafford( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
"Described by CIA chief Allen Dulles as "one of the most valuable and daring projects ever undertaken," Operation Stopwatch/Gold was carried out from under a secret tunnel half a mile long under the Russian sector of Cold War-era Berlin as, for more than a year, the CIA tuned in to German Red Army intelligence. This was an almost impossible trick: apart from the technical wizardry needed, any noise or vibration could have given the game away. Indeed, when snow fell, panic measures were suddenly needed to prevent its thawing in a telltale line leading to the target building. An added layer of complexity came from the fact that Stopwatch/Gold was a joint CIA/MI6 project, and after Burgess and Maclean, it was clear that full disclosure, even between allies, could be dangerous. And in fact, there was a mole in the British secret services; the KGB knew about the tunnel even before it was built." "Whether or not Operation Stopwatch/Gold was a success has been a point of contention over the years, as new information about KGB mole George Blake and the Cold War has been uncovered. For the first time, using eyewitness interviews and the full range of source material - from KGB files to CIA documents - Stafford reveals the thrillingly complex story of this operation."--BOOK JACKET
