Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning presents an eight-week course on "The Secret War: Espionage and Other Covert Activities in World War II." It will be held from 1-3 p.m. Wednesdays, Jan. 12-March 2, in room 414 Cohodas at Northern Michigan University.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The Allied victory in WWII may be ascribed ultimately to superiority of men and arms. But historians agree that were it not for the AlliesÂ’ remarkable achievements in the secret side of the conflict, the war would have lasted several years longer. The activities of the secret war included the training and running of spies, the neutralization of enemy spies, the breaking of German and Japanese codes, and the use of deception techniques to confuse the enemy.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The course will be conducted according to a discussion-based format, with the active participation of class members is encouraged. A bibliography and other materials will be handed out at the first class.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  Roger Magnuson, a retired history professor from McGill University in Montreal, will be the presenter.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The cost is $32 for NCLL members and $56 for nonmembers. Please register by Jan. 7 by calling John Forslin at 249-3229. NCLL will offer a course on espionage during the Cold War in the spring. Â Ã‚
