MI5: British Security Service Operations, 1909-1945
"MI5 is arguably the most secret and most misunderstood of all government departments. Its enigmatic title - much more than its proper name, the Security Service - stands in the public mind for the dark world of the secret services in general. In reality it has a very specific brief: counter-intelligence. Its object is to combat espionage, sabotage and subversion directed against the UK. Nigel West's book traces the history of MI5 clearly and accurately from its modest beginnings in 1909 until 1945. Many of its operations both at home and abroad are described for the first time."--Source : inconnue.
