About this title


This readable account thoroughly examines the role played by British intelligence in allied strategy and operations in World War II. The overriding theme throughout is the influence of intelligence on the decisions made by political leaders and military commanders.


"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
