The Weider History Group's web page GreatHistory.com published my column on Gordon Thomas' book Secret Wars: One Hundred Years of British Intelligence Inside MI5 and MI6.
This past August marked a century of the two oldest and most powerful secret intelligence services in the world: the British Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). Thomas, an author who has covered intelligence and espionage for more than 50 years and has published 40 books, interviewed a wide array of current and former intelligence chiefs and officers for this book.
He interviewed the former directors of the British security services as well as the former directors and senior officers of the American CIA and the Israeli Mossad. He also interviewed the legendary spymaster East German Stasi espionage chief Markus Wolf.
