News from Cass
Frank Cass Publishers have been appointed the official publishers for Whitehall History Publishing (WHP), which is a new initiative to coordinate the historical publishing programs of Whitehall departments, including the official history program and the publications of the Cabinet Office, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and the Ministry of Defense. As well as original historical works, many of the Whitehall Histories will be important works from the archives, previously unpublished, classified, or available in only limited editions for internal government use.
The first two Whitehall Histories, due to be published in June, are the official Naval Staff Histories of the campaign in Norway and the evacuation from Dunkirk. These Naval Staff Histories were originally published in the 1940s and 1950s for the internal use of the Admiralty.
