Photographed in full color. Go under cover to investigate the intriguing world of espionage. From spies of Genghis Khan to the real inspiration behind James Bond to the history and operations of secret service offices around the world, this volume reveals all the fascinating tools, disguises, and tricks of the trade.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8. In the format typical of this series, busy two-page chapters describe and illustrate the history, purpose, methods, and tools of spying from biblical times to the present. Military, industrial, and surveillance spying are also discussed. Fictional spies are featured in the last chapter. An attempt is made to explain how the Enigma cipher machine operated during World War II, but it is not satisfactory. In a section about cracking the Purple code, a caption states that Pearl Harbor was attacked at night, when it was actually 7:55 a.m. The full-color photos and reproductions add a great deal to the text. This book is by no means a necessary purchase, but readers will enjoy browsing through the world of stealth and espionage.?Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
