"Anyone who likes a good spy story but has doubts about the value of historians rummaging around in archives should look at the magisterial five-volume official history 'British Intelligence in the Second World War' produced by a team of scholars under the distinguished historian Harry Hinsley. Of particular interest is Michael Howard's slim but brilliant final volume, dealing with strategic deception." New York Times Book Review
