1.0 out of 5 stars A highly misleading title, 20 April 2006
If ever there was a book that promised so much in its title and then delivered so little in its content this must be it. "Secret Underground Cities" conjurs up visions of vast subterranean areas designed for habitation. Wow, what a story, why have I not heard of this before? Well, actually, it's because there were no "Cities" underground. Yes, this book does document the fate of old mines and quarries converted to mainly miltary purposes but is so dry and dull that it is of very little interest to any but a very small audience. Note to self: peer carefully between the covers before buying the next volume with a clever title.
