In “The Last Goodnight”, Howard Blum offers a riveting biography of Betty Pack, a dazzling American debutante who became an Allied spy during WWII. This “unsung heroine” seduced diplomats in exchange for ciphers, cracked embassy safes; and obtained the codebooks Alan Turing used to create Ultra . But beneath her bravado was a troubling a lack of emotional depth and a willing to take risk that bordered on recklessness. “War at the End of the World” by James Duffy recounts Douglas MacArthur’s little known campaign in the harsh jungles of New Guinea, a four-year campaign fought in monsoon-soaked wilderness, debilitating heat, over impassable mountains, and across torrential rivers.
