Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
The definitive history of the military's decades-long investigation into mental powers and phenomena, from the author of Pulitzer Prize finalist The Pentagon's Brain and international bestseller Area 51.
This is a book about a team of scientists and psychics with top secret clearances.
For more than forty years, the U.S. government has researched extrasensory perception, using it in attempts to locate hostages, fugitives, secret bases, and downed fighter jets, to divine other nations' secrets, and even to predict future threats to national security. The intelligence agencies and military services involved include CIA, DIA, NSA, DEA, the Navy, Air Force, and Army -- and even the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Now, for the first time, New York Times bestselling author Annie Jacobsen tells the story of these radical, controversial programs, using never before seen declassified documents as well as exclusive interviews with, and unprecedented access to, more than fifty of the individuals involved. Speaking on the record, many for the first time, are former CIA and Defense Department scientists, analysts, and program managers, as well as the government psychics themselves.
Who did the U.S. government hire for these top secret programs, and how do they explain their military and intelligence work? How do scientists approach such enigmatic subject matter? What interested the government in these supposed powers and does the research continue? Phenomena is a riveting investigation into how far governments will go in the name of national security.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £11.90 - Click book title for availability and further details
March 29, 1973 - A C-130 withdrew the last American combat contingent from Tan Son Nhut Airport in Saigon, but Vietnamese casualties continued to mount until Saigon fell on April 30, 1975. But the Vietnam War - a war which was never officially a war - was over on December 23, 1972, for Major Michael Reardon. He was reported "killed in action, body not recovered" during a bombing mission of a strategic target on the Northern Vietnam border. His death occurred only days before President Nixon halted the United States air offensive in North Vietnam. Major Reardon joined 58,000 other Americans who would not be coming home from Southeast Asia. The future had held such promise for Michael and Wynne Reardon. Vietnam would be Michael's last overseas assignment. They planned to live on the coast in Northwest Florida where Wynne realized her dream of owning an art studio called Shoreline Gallery. His death shattered these hopes and dreams. Author Smith deftly carries the reader through Wynne's emotional heartache as Wynne deals with remembrances of the love of her husband versus the new love developing with Jason Garrison. Jason is a handsome, skilled potter hired to help make Shoreline Gallery successful. Complicating matters is the fact that Jason was a Vietnam War veteran protestor while Michael won the Medal of Honor posthumously for his last act of valor in the War. Whether or not Jason and Wynne's fragile relationship can survive her persistent hope for Michael's return as a P.O.W., is the question Smith uses effectively to entice the reader to each successive page and chapter. Twilight of Honor is a heart-warming, family-friendly novel of the power of love to heal all emotional wounds.

The horror and the humanity of war come too close, when a little fishing boat, the Breadwinner, rescues a pilot shot down in the Channel during a dogfight. The only trouble is, the pilot is German. As the young fisherman tends his wounds, he comes to realize that war is not exciting, and the enemy before him is just a young boy like himself - indistinguishable from the once glamorous English pilot who soon also crashes near the boat.
