I could only get thru 3 chapters before calling it quits. Simply a compilation of hundred's of spy names and no detailed stories of interest behind any of them.

This is very lengthy and comprehensive narrative about WW2 spying efforts by all parties. Being so thorough, it has to involve naming many individuals and it gives a lot of information about the important players and the work they did. This is not a book for anyone who is interested in only short snippets about exciting exploits, or glamorous spies leading dangerous lives. It is the most informative history that I have read on this subject.

Comprehensive coverage that at time drags. Formating could use work to make easier reading but it usually moved along well. Can not say I enjoy recent history by English authors as most of these recently released books are written to showcase how important Britian was/is to world history (especially WWII). I guess it must be hard to go from a great "empire" to a lone island with little world influence. Still a decent book about the entire secret war from 1939-1945. J C

If you want to read a telephone book of spies names--this is for you. No story- just word salad. Terrible
