Clean, tight, unmarked; very small crease close to inside edge of front cover; otherwise absolute minimal wear; spine straight and uncreased; appears unread; The WWII intelligence exploits of Canadian spymaster William Stephenson were celebrated in his lifetime in espionage lore the world over. This mysterious man, known wimply as 'Intrepid,' established the secret WWII espionage organization known as the British Security Coordination, and is said to be the real-life model for James Bond. This fully revised edition features personal interviews with those who worked with Stephenson and a foreword by CIA staff historian Thomas F. Troy. Of spcial historic significance are the revelations of the late Benjamin de Forest Bayly, an associate of Stephenson's who had never before spoken about this espionage work. Bayly was the Allied forces' communication genius whose electronic wizardry helped guard top secrets and win the Battle of the Atlantic. In this fascinating re-examination of the historical record, Macdonald documents Stephenson's clouded early life and unravels the tangled strings of information that run through secret papers and previous books to reveal the astonishing true story of the man who said: "Nothing deceives like a document."
