The Bedford Triangle: US Undercover Operations from England in the Second World War

    By

    The Bedford Triangle portrays the crucial part played by the British Special Operations Executive SOE,US Army Air Force USAAF and American Office of Strategic Services OSS in operations behind enemy lines in occupied Europe during World War Two. Milton Ernest Hall, a country house in Bedfordshire used officially as the UK headquarters of the US Army Airforce Service Command, was located at the heart of a network of top secret Allied Radio and propaganda transmitting stations, political warfare units and undercover British and American formations dealing in espionage and subterfuge. Martin Bowman draws upon revealing first-hand accounts, together with official documentary evidence, to provide tantalising glimpses of the cloak and dagger operations. The author's extensive research has revealed that Allied Secret Service organisations participated in even more unorthodox activities, such as clandestine propaganda and political warfare. He also reveals the truth behind what really happened to legendary band leader Glenn Miller.
