Diplomacy and Intelligence During the Second World War: Essays in Honour of F. H. Hinsley
Edited by Richard Langhorne

A collection of scholarly essays worthy of its recipient, a distinguished historian of British intelligence and himself a youth at Bletchley Park, described by Christopher Andrew as "providing probably the most valuable intelligence in the history of warfare." New interpretations and often new sources on such critical topics as Churchill's determination to carry on the war in May-June 1940, on Roosevelt's announcement of the policy of unconditional surrender, on the British and Tito. Some of these essays should open up new and useful controversies.
