Synopsis: Winston Churchill believed passionately in the value of secret intelligence, in times of war as well as of peace. As a young correspondent and soldier in Cuba and South Africa, he experienced its worth first hand. As wartime Prime Minister, he built a centralized intelligence community, responded daily to raw ''Ultra'' reports, created the Special Operations Executive to work behind enemy lines and, with Roosevelt, built the intelligence alliance that endures to this day.
Historian David Stafford makes the compelling case that one cannot understand Churchill's astounding success as a modern day statesman without reference to his deep involvement in the world of espionage. With absorbing detail about the secret world of agents and double-agents, this groundbreaking work traces Churchill's connections with that world, 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. What results is a major contribution to the study of modern and military history and a crucial missing key to understanding Churchill himself.
About the Author: DAVID STAFFORD is an expert in intelligence and espionage operations and the author of numerous books. A former diplomat, he is currently Projects Director at the Centre for the Study of the Two World Wars at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland and a Leverhulme Emeritus Professor in the University's School of History, Classics, and Archaeology.
