Description
With absorbing detail about the secret world of agents and double agents rivaling le Carre, this groundbreaking work traces Churchill's connections with the world of intelligence, from his days as a member of the Cabinet that established the Secret Service to the war years, when his extensive intelligence network provided him with superior information - the brilliant pay-off for his years of nurturing these contacts. As both a riveting account of the origins and inner workings of modern intelligence agencies and a study of Churchill and his role in the development of modern day intelligence, Churchill and Secret Service is a major contribution to the study of modern and military history and a crucial missing key to understanding Churchill himself.
