High Cold War


Covers primarily the operation of aircraft for sigint, elint and photo reconnaissance purposes during the Cold War. This is not a truly comprehensive work because an amount of information is still classified, even for some of the operations during the 1950s, but it is a well researched and structured account of the development of signal intelligence and electronic intelligence during the period from 1945. There is also an account of the operations over Germany by Sidney Cotton in a Lockheed Electra in the 1930s and of the development of the Lockheed XC-35, which was a modified pressurized Electra and the start of the long Lockheed association with Black and Grey Projects
