The book includes the origins of the British colour codes systems used when Cold War deception was at its height, a listing of all the project names coined, a glossary and details of some of the more interesting and even bizarre projects which were considered at this time such as the Green Janet/Blue Bishop portable nuclear power station. This is a fascinating glimpse of some of the leading-edge technology which the British miliary research establishment was working on at this time and puts these hitherto little-known projects into their historical and political context.
