This extraordinarily well researched book is an absolute winner. Ben Macintyre has put together, in an immensely readable form, some of the most fascinating stories of the spies who did so much to help our Country. His style is easy to read and yet, allows the stories to be told in such a way that one almost feels that one knows each of the characters he explores - and what characters they are! There are some very interesting titbits such as how each Agent was given their code name, and why. I suspect that this book will appeal to a wide cross-section of the Public and whether you are a serious Historian or someone with just an interest in WWII stories, you cannot fail to be both entertained and enlightened. Buy it and enjoy, you won't regret it.Double Cross
