I first read Christopher Andrew when I read the book he co-authored with an ex-KGB official, called The Sword and the Shield. I recommend that book highly, just for the back story alone, although the book is incredible as well. I bought this book several years ago and only just picked it up.

In many respects, it is very similar to The Sword and the Shield. There's a lot of great stories here, and the book is exceedingly well footnoted. Andrew's writing style is top notch.

From the late 19th century, up to WWII, his book is 5 star effort.

And then it just more or less stops. Yes, we hear some things about ULTRA and Bletchley Park, but we never hear about "The Man Who Never Was", we never hear about the massive and complex work done to fool the Germans into thinking the real invasion was going to be led by Patton's non-existent million man army, and there is nary a mention about anything that happened after WWII, except for anticipatory mention of the Cambridge defectors who rocked the western intelligence agencies when their perfidy was exposed well after the war. The only mention of R.V. Jones, who almost single handedly won the radar wars occurs once on page 433, even though his work had a tremendous effect on both the Battle of Britain as well as the crippling of the German atomic bomb program.

I thoroughly enjoyed this up to WWII, but it is kind of like watching your racehorse decide not to finish the last quarter mile. If you're an enthusiast, you'll still find this well worth your time, but a premature finish really dimmed could have been.

This detailed book was very enlightening on a subject that I knew very little.

I am largely in agreement with the two previous three-star reviewers. I originally picked this up in order to do some research on the subject and wound up reading it from cover to cover. At the end, it seemed like I had just had a tough slog, though looking back, I realize that one other reviewer was right about the book suddenly losing wind at World War II. The first portion, though, is a decent enough read, and in the end rather informative. There are other books on the subject out there, but I've not yet gotten to them. I suspect at least one must be better than this one.

This not a book you want to read at one sitting!!! I found it more useful reading the essence of each chapter and not bothering with the details, unless I was searching for a specific topic or instance. Also due the date of the publication and the many new books coming out on this topic rechecking your facts with other sources always recomended. My favaorate part of the book is the first few chapters which describes the birth and infancy of one of the most famous intellegence organizations in the world. Overall, it is good read if you don't get wrapped up with too much of the details.
