Does that mean this?

Great Soviet bluff by Wladyslaw Michniewicz

Operation "Trust" - the first international combination of the Soviet special services, which assumptions are the foundation of their business to modern times.

Masz absolutną rację!
Michniewicz was a Polish intelligence official in the 1920s. Good luck finding this book however. Near as I know there are only a handful of copies in existence.

The Stockholm Run: Air Transport Between Britain and Sweden During WWII

Quote:
The German assault on Denmark and Norway in April 1940 effectively cut off all surface communications between neutral Sweden and the Western Allies. Diplomats and VIPs still needed to travel to and from Sweden and exports of highly valuable goods needed to be maintained. To gain support for the war against an all-conquering Germany, it was also important to give Swedish public opinion the opportunity to read British newspapers and magazines. The only realistic way to maintain these links between Sweden and Britain was by air, and a service was immediately established by BOAC, operating Lockheed Super Electras. Throughout the war, a variety of aircraft would operate the service, including Hudson, Lodestar, Whitley, Dakota, Liberator and of course the Mosquito, all being demilitarized as the Swedes did not allow armed aircraft to operate on their airfields. From the Norwegian perspective, and helping the allied war effort, the thousands of young Norwegians who fled to Sweden were keen to join the Allied fight against the Nazis. Unhappy with the lack of capacity provided by BOAC, a Norwegian transport unit was established, operating as a detachment of BOAC, was set up with the focus on carrying people. Keen to keep up exports and allowing Swedish nationals the freedom to travel, Swedish airline AB Aerotransport established their own service to Britain in 1942 with DC-3s, and later B-17s converted to carry passengers and cargo. From 1944, the USAAF Air Transport Command established their service to fly out Norwegian refugees and to return interned bomber crews, operating civilian registered CB-24, C-87 and C-54.

This book covers the history of the flights and the aircraft used. It also has details of the markings and color schemes throughout the war, illustrated with many rare wartime photos and color profiles by the author of all the aircraft types.
Comprehensive book with a lot of material to digest. Great pictures and maps as well. Also looks at the German response to these flights.

The relations between neutral Sweden and the Western Allies is an aspect of WW2 I would like to learn more about.
Thnx

Good book to understand the political realities in countries mostly in the Third World and the obstacles faced by any Western military operations in those regions.
