By Keith Jeffery
2010 | 832 Pages | ISBN: 1594202745 | EPUB | 5 MB
The authorized history of the world's oldest and most storied foreign intelligence service, drawing extensively on hitherto secret documents.
Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (also commonly known as MI6) was born a century ago amid fears of the rising power of other countries, especially Germany. The next forty years saw MI6 taking an increasingly important-and, until now, largely hidden-role in shaping the history of Europe and the world. This thorough, fascinating, and revelatory account draws on a wealth of archival materials never before seen by any outsider to unveil the inner workings of the world's first spy agency.
