While others have speculated on the history and nature of the British intelligence services, this is the first to tell the story through the documents themselves. Only ten years ago, access to these original sources would have been impossible. Now experts - Stephen Twigge and Graham Macklin draw on the spies'and the spymasters'own words as contained in the National Archives'intelligence holdings. Historical narrative is interwoven with colourful tales from the past that highlight some of the great successes - and failures - along the way. And readers who want to discover more through the sources themselves are given all the help they need.
