The Secret History of MI6

Author: Keith Jeffery
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9781101443460
Release Date: 2010-09-21
Genre: History

The authorized history of the world's oldest and most storied foreign intelligence service, drawing extensively on hitherto secret documents Britain's Special Intelligence Service, commonly called MI6, is not only the oldest and most storied foreign intelligence unit in the world - it is also the only one to open its archives to an outside researcher. The result, in this authorized history, is an unprecedented and revelatory look at an organization that essentially created, over the course of two world wars, the modern craft of spying. Here are the true stories that inspired Ian Fleming's James Bond's novels and John le Carré George Smiley novels. Examining innovations from invisible ink and industrial-scale cryptography to dramatic setbacks like the Nazi sting operations to bag British operatives, this groundbreaking history is as engrossing as any thriller - and much more revealing. "Perhaps the most authentic account one will ever read about how intelligence really works." -The Washington Times From the Trade Paperback edition.

Confessions of an MI6 Agent

Author: Foti Jean-Pierre Fotiu
Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
ISBN: 9781483491448
Release Date: 2018-12-03
Genre: Fiction

“Confessions of an MI6 Agent” is a fictional life journey of a voluptuous English spy named Eileen Zimmerman. Eileen was desperately seeking revenge for the bombing of London that killed her family members and for the dreadful “Jewish Holocaust.” She worked her way up to become an MI6 agent assigned to New York to work in conjunction with the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC to entice the Americans to fight the war in Europe. As a writer of a fictional story I was infatuated to produce a great character which has all the human elements of good and bad, generous, selfish, moral, and immoral, sexy and promiscuous, reserved and intelligent. I aimed to create a protagonist with a soft heart for human kind but confused by her past traumatic misfortunes. There were times which she desperately searched to rectify her past behavior, but she couldn’t refrain herself from abandoning her well-structured lies and deceptions.

Inside British Intelligence

Author: Gordon Thomas
Publisher: JR Books Limited
ISBN: 9781907532658
Release Date: 2013-09-23
Genre: True Crime

DIV 100 years old in August 2009, this is a complete and up-to-date account of the two oldest and still the most powerful, secretive intelligence services in the world: MI5, the security service, and MI6, the secret intelligence service. This is a story of spectacular triumphs, treachery, their frigid relationship, their untold work with the CIA, Mossad and the spy services of Europe, and their part in the fight against terror. It is also the story of two agencies led by men who are enigmatic, eccentric and controversial and who ruthlessly control their spies. From the unique partnership between Mossad and MI6, how MI5 and MI6 became a breeding ground for Soviet spies post-war, their exploitation of the collapse of the Soviet Union and their role in biological warfare, and including how both services monitor the spies of every nation based in London, it reads like fiction. But itÕs not. Based on prodigious research and interviews with significant players Inside British Intelligence is packed with new and startling information. Gordon Thomas is a bestselling author of 40 books published worldwide, a number dealing with the intelligence world, including GideonÕs Spies and Secrets and Lies (both JR Books). His awards include the Citizens Commission for Human Rights Lifetime Achievement Award for Investigative Journalism, the Mark Twain Society Award for Reporting Excellence, and an Edgar Allan Poe Award for Investigation. He lives in Ireland. /div


Author: Chapman Pincher
Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 9781845968113
Release Date: 2011-05-05
Genre: Political Science

In Treachery, noted intelligence authority Chapman Pincher makes a compelling case that Roger Hollis, head of MI5 from 1956 to 1965, was himself a double agent, acting to undermine and imperil the UK and America. Myriad intriguing case histories are portrayed, including that of Lt Igor Gouzenko, a Red Army cipher clerk whose 1945 disclosure of a mole in MI5 touched off the Cold War. With a mass of new evidence, some from Russian sources, Pincher also provides exciting new perspectives on other infamous operatives, including Kim Philby and Klaus Fuchs. Perhaps most explosively, Pincher posits that long after Hollis stepped down, a cover-up was perpetrated at the highest levels, even involving Margaret Thatcher, to conceal the truth for ever – a deception that continues today. Treachery warns us to protect our society and institutions from enemy infiltration in the future. It is a revelatory work that puts twentieth-century politics and war into stunning new relief.
