Beyond Top Secret Ultra
Beyond Top Secret Ultra
By Ewen Montagu
Coward, McCann, 1978, 192 pp

In the recent flood of accounts of the (usually) masterful use by the British of intelligence and deception operations during World War II, this ranks very high. The author, who will be remembered for the earlier The Man Who Never Was describing one such classic operation, now gives a first-hand account of the whole array, as seen from the Navy standpoint. The result is terse, balanced, beautifully written, and at least as informative as the tomes that have tended to occupy the recent spotlight.
