A classic about real-life WWII espionage, as conducted by its modern master
A Man Called Intrepid is the classic true story of Sir William Stephenson (codenamed Intrepid) and the spy network he founded that would ultimately stall the Nazi war machine and help win World War II. Ian Fleming, bestselling author of the James Bond novels, once remarked, ?James Bond is a highly romanticized version of a true spy. The real thing is William Stephenson.?
Illustrated with thirty-two pages of black-and-white photographs, this book describes the infamous ?Camp X? spy training center in Ontario, Canada; the breaking of the Ultra Code used by Enigma; and countless tales of assassinations, clandestine activities, guerrilla armies, resistance support, and suicide missions. This modern classic, which reads like fiction, was a national bestseller when first published in 1976.
Inhaltsangabe: This book should be required reading for every high school student in America. I enjoy WWII history, especially the less known facts. I also enjoy stories about spies, espionage, and military strategy. This book not only delivered all of the aforementioned items, but also provided unique insight into the politics and sentiments of post WWI Europe and America. The book highlights the great efforts of a select few that ultimately saved the free world from Nazi rule. I could not put this book down. No other work provides such a glimpse into the horrific nature of Hitler and his cohort. Anyone who wants to better understand WWII and why certain epic events took place should read this book.
