Empire of Secrets: British Intelligence, the Cold War, and the Twilight of Empire (Paperback)
Mining recently declassified records, Calder Walton reveals the missing link in Britain's post-war history. Drawing on hitherto overlooked personal papers, this is the first book to utilize records from the Foreign Office's secret archive, which contains some of the darkest and most shameful secrets from the last days of Britain's empire. Packed with scenes straight out of a John le Carre novel, Empire of Secrets, is an exhilarating read by an exciting new voice in intelligence history.
