Bullock, Alan. Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives Vintage Books, ISBN 0679729941
Excellent book if you are interested in their personal history and motivations.

Cowles, V. The Phantom Major. 1958.
An account of the creation of the Long Range Desert Group and the various operations it undertook from July 1941 to January 1943. It includes details of training, equipment and has a few decent period photographs of desert operations. Much of it is based on David Stirling's own reminisces, and those of other original members of the LRDG.

Delmer, Selton. Black Boomerang.
Black radio operations against Germany, by the man who headed up those operations. Demolishes the myth of the good anti-Nazi Wehrmacht.

Goodrick-Clarke Nicolas. The Occult Roots of Nazism: Secret Aryan Cults and Their Influence on Nazi Ideology. New York: New York University Press, 1994. ISBN 0-814-73060-4
The best book on the strange topic of Nazi occultism, focusing on the relationship between Ariosophist "scholars" and the development of the Nazi ideology rather than the kind of insane rambling common to other books. An invaluable resource to Keepers who want to keep their campaign grounded in some kind of reality.

Howe, Ellic. The Black Game: British Subversive Operations Against the Germans During the Second World War.
Primary focus is on propaganda activities in Germany.

Olsen, O.R. Two Eggs On My Plate. 1954.
An autobiographical piece by a member of the Norwegian resistance. The first third of the book describes his flight from Norway in late 1940, whilst the remainder details his resistance work in Norway from 1943 to the end of hostilities. Again, a primary source with some period photographs, details of operations and so forth.

Lorain, Pierre. Clandestine Operations. ISBN: 0025752006
A good reference book for the French Resistance and SOE. Topics covered include radio operations (both by resistance members and the German attempts to locate the transmiters), cryptography, and equipment used (with some very nice line drawings... apparently the author / illustrator was trained as an architect).

Lorain, Pierre. Secret Warfare: The Arms and Techniques of the Resistance. ISBN 0-85613-586-0. Published 1984 by Orbis Publishing, London, UK. Translated by David Kahn from the original Armement Clandestin published in 1972.
This may be the same book as Clandestine Operations.

Schoenbrun, David. Soldiers of the Night: The Story of the French Resistance.
Comprehensive discussion of French resistance activities, from the fall of France to liberation.

Smith, Bradley F. The Shadow Warriors: OSS and the Origins of the CIA. New York: Basic Books Inc. 1983. ISBN 0-465-07756-0
An excellent study of the politics involved in creating the OSS, its effectiveness during the war, and its (lack of) relationship in the creation of the CIA. Not very informative on actual OSS operations, and overall rather dry.

Sweets, John F. Choices in Vichy France: The French Under Nazi Occupation. Oxford University Press: 1994. ISBN 0-195-09052-7
Especially useful in that it deals with the effects of occupation on the town of Clermont-Ferrand, the main town in the Auvergne (related to Clark Ashton-Smith's Averoigne) and the closest town to Vichy.

Toland, John. The Rising Sun.
Overvew of how the Japanese came to wage war against the US and military operations in the Pacific.
