Since World War I, Cyprus has played a crucial role in British defense strategy. Panagiotis Dimitrakis here introduces new research which reveals the true role of British intelligence on the island throughout the twentieth century, particularly during World War II, the 1955-59 Archbishop Makarios and EOKA-led revolt and the 1974 Turkish invasion. He sheds fresh light on the stance of both Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Foreign Secretary James Callaghan towards Greece and Turkey in the turbulent 1970s, and provides important new perspectives on the 1978 Egyptian hostage crisis at Larnaca Airport and the research is based throughout on primary sources including previously unpublished declassified papers from British diplomats and intelligence officers. This is a valuable study for scholars of contemporary strategy and military history and for those interested in military intelligence and the history of Cyprus.

About the Author:

Panagiotis Dimitrakis is an historian, based in Athens. He obtained his PhD from King's College, London and is the author of 'Greece and the English: British Diplomacy and the Kings of Greece' (I.B.Tauris, 2009).

Review:

'In Military Intelligence in Cyprus Panagiotis Dimitrakis takes the reader on a fascinating grand tour of the history of British intelligence and strategy in the eastern Mediterranean. His book is a valuable and authoritative contribution to the growing literature on Britain's secret wars.' - Joseph Maiolo, Senior Lecturer in International History, Department of War Studies, King's College, London; 'Panagiotis Dimitrakis has mined the archives separating fact and fiction from a world that was filled with smoke and mirrors. He lays out an exciting story and all its secret machinations by spies and double agents, with gripping clarity. His approach is objective, balanced and verifiable.' - David Carter, editor of the Cyprus section of Britain's Small Wars
