Hidden evidence : 40 true crimes and how forensic science helped solve them by David Owen( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Hidden Evidence takes you to the scenes of 40 infamous crimes and into the heart of the forensic investigations. These are the true crime shockers that have grabbed headlines and aroused public passions. David Owen explains the scientific procedures that helped crack every one of these cases- from the gathering of elusive physical clues to the examination of weapons and bodies, to the use of sophisticated scientific analysis. Threaded throughout the book is the history of forensic science and the technologies that support it, including: fingerprinting, autopsies, handwriting analysis, ballistics, hair sampling, blood typing, DNA testing, dental records, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, compound and electron microscopes, and toxicology. The high-profile cases David Owen used to illustrate forensic developments are from as early as 1775, when Paul Revere used dentures to identify a slain soldier, to the latest developments in the Oklahoma bombing. Most will be familiar to readers, such as: The Lindbergh Kidnapping, Pan Am Flight 103, The Kennedy Investigation, The Hitler Diaries, Wayne Williams, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey MacDonald, Dr. Josef Mengele, Robert Maxwell's suicide, Tsar Nicholas II, and The World Trade Center bombing

An illustrated guide to the deadly world of espionage. Agents, double agents and multiple agents are vital to waging war successfully and they often help nations avoid war altogether. Spies have affected the outcomes of wars and crucial battles throughout history. Spies exposes the secret successes and public failures of intelligence gathering and operations from ancient times to the current war on terrorism. Using easy-to-follow illustrated case studies and sidebar features, Spies reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of famous spies, international secrets, betrayals and bravery in the long history of spying. The book describes in exciting detail:- The art of spy tradecraft- Techniques spies use to gather and send secrets- Devices used to steal state secrets- How agents survive in hostile environments- Whether or not spies like James Bond really exist. Today, sophisticated digital and space-based technology gathers untold amounts of raw data. Yet far from rendering the spy on the ground obsolete, human intelligence is more vital than ever to separate the truth from the deception. Spies is a factual and fascinating look into a dangerous world where nothing is what it appears to be.--

Anti-submarine warfare : an illustrated history by David Owen( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ubåden var utvivlsomt, i forhold til sin omkostning, det mest effektive våben flåderne anvendte i det tyvende århundrede. Således udgjorde det tyske ubådsvåben i begge verdenskrige den største trussel for engelsk søfart og dermed for Englands overlevelsesevne. Det amerikanske ubådsvåben var ligeledes ikke alene en trussel for Japan, men var den direkte årsag til den japanske handelsflådes totale nedkæmpning med forsyningskrise i Japan til følge. Midler og modmidler var her i spil og gav skiftevis undervands- og overfladestyrkerne fordele. Værket gennemgår ret nøje samtlige ubådskampagner i det tyvende århundrede og sætter ubådsvåbnet i dets store og fortjente perspektiv. Forfatteren har en lang række publiceringer bag sig og bearbejdningen virker rutineret. Bibliografi, kildefortegnelse og noteapparat er anført som bilag
