One of Britain’s finest military historians casts his gaze from savage battlefields to the quiet offices, dimly lit street corners and half whispered assignations that made up the Secret War of the Second World War. Max Hastings unpicks the murky world of espionage and counter espionage as employed by British, American, German, Russian and Japanese operatives. He reveals how this second Secret War vastly influenced the success or otherwise of the conflict. From Bletchley to the FBI – the Secret War is secret no longer.
