Endorsements

“Extraordinarily useful, endlessly interesting…. A triumph, a delight to read as well as an essential work of reference which captures the adventurous side of SIS with as much zest as he reveals its successes and failures” — John Simpson

“A magisterial account of the two wars in particular, viewed via the prism of secret intelligence. Winningly, it also entertains” — Independent on Sunday (UK). 

“Fascinating…. The book is full of examples of the ingenuity and courage shown by all ranks” — Douglas Hurd, Guardian (UK). 

“Full of episode and personality, without ever succumbing to the swash and buckle that can dazzle those who get close to SIS” — Daily Telegraph (UK).
