Taylor & Francis’ collection, Secret Files from World Wars to Cold War, is a collection of specialized documents and files from the United Kingdom’s National Archives. This particular collection consists of archival materials that provide insight into U.K. foreign policy, diplomacy, international relations, and military history in the periods of the Spanish Civil War, Appeasement (1930s), Second World War, Korean War, and early Cold War. Secret Files documents and files also emphasize the growth of the “intelligence machine” from 1873 to the early years of the Cold War in 1953. Well-written FAQs, help videos, and user guides located below the fold assist researchers in conducting their searches. The database, however, is not without its problems, which include specific search challenges, lack of page lengths (numbers), e-mailing and printing capabilities. Nevertheless, Secret Files is a unique collection, one that will appeal to researchers with interests in British history as it relates to diplomacy, conflicts and world wars, military-intelligence strategy, and international relations.
