    One thought on “Inside British Intelligence: 100 Years of MI5 and MI6”

    1. I did not want this to end Then, I ve always harboured a not so secret desire to become a spy Gordon Thomas book is rather spellbinding Given the MI5 MI6 focus, it may appeal to Brits Yet there is so much that relates to the American agencies their creation and power struggles , Canadians, Russians, Mossad, Australia, they all play or played a part heck, if you like spy movies, why wouldn t you enjoy this It is gritty and realistic, revealing the complex worlds of intelligence and foreign power [...]

    2. Many spelling mistakes in my version, strange chapters ordering, but very nice stories for those who are interested in this topic.

    3. Any merit one might attribute to this book is greatly diminished by its ancient and doubtful reference to Evan Morgan, Lord Tredegar as one of the country s leading falconers.The original source of this is Nigel West in his book of 1981 on MI5 s history based on interviews with ex Security Services staff not files in Whitehall or in National Archives Tredegar s name was often flushed around mainly by himself as being a war veteran and a hero of many exploits of fame and courage Nothing could be [...]

    4. Excellent book While the focus is on MI5 Britian s domestic equivalent of the FBI and MI6 Britain s international equivalent of the CIA , Thomas shows, along the way, how all the global intelligence agencies are intertwined and opens a vivid window of insight into how they work together, apart, and often against each other.Thomas brings the global intelligence community and their bumbling and astounding ignorance, at times under the microscope and into the hot, glaring white light of scrutiny in [...]

    5. Some have declared this to be a history of Britain s spy agencies, which is a bit much for such a poorly organized book Not only does Thomas fail to follow a chronological narrative some history , he doesn t even stick with MI5 MI6 There are long sequences about the CIA, as well as chapters on Mossad and South Africa s germ warfare program And, despite his claims to access to newly discovered information, most of this book covers ground from the Cold War and War on Terror that you could have lea [...]

    6. Meh I could give it 2.5 stars, because there were some interesting stories and facts I didn t know, but overall I was not impressed It s a collection of anecdotes, told in a rather incoherently disorganized way the first chapters jumped back and forth in a way that made no sense , and with no critical analysis or unifying thesis A bunch of stories about a bunch of people in the spy business some of the stories were interesting, scary, and with a bit critical thought could tell you something coh [...]

    7. Wow zers Read, read, and read again A page flipper in non fiction the facts behind MI5, MI6, the CIA, Mossad, etc operations world intelligence agencies Gordon describes the very disturbing details of past and Present coverups assassinations There is so much detail in this book it took me three months to read I was immersed and I highly recommend it.Regarding the current world state of intelligence affairs i.e how good is the CIA now compared to China s intelligence agency or the Iran situation [...]

    12. An intriguing book with a number of interesting insights Unfortunately, it is marred by a rambling narrative which often strays too far from the main theme A good, astringent editor would have made all the difference, as would a clearer approach to the differences between SIS MI6 and its domestic counterpart, MI5 All in all, lots of oyster, not much pearl.

    13. A tough read in that it does not spare one knowledge about past and present security threats in the world That said, it s fascinating to learn about British Intelligence Services, along with other countries security services, including the United States If you re a citizen of this country, you can not claim that you ve never been listened to, after reading this book Find out why

    14. This book is a crock of shit, don t bother with it The author is an obvious Walter Mitty type, who hasn t done even the most basic research You ll get insight into the intelligence services by sitting on Vauxhall Bridge for 10 minutes than you ever will from this book

    15. This book is interesting, but I m not interested in all of its polemics about Labour being in bed with communists and the hagiography of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan I wanted a book about espionage.

    16. Gran libro, aqu encontrar n los secretos y las verdaderas t cnicas de espionaje del MI5 y MI6 Los verdaderos M y Q , as como las mujeres que inspiraron el personaje de Judi Dench Excelente para los seguidores de Bond.

    17. This book was an excellent overview of the Secret Services in Britain, the U.S and to a lesser extent Israel Clear and concise, the author was unbiased as a human being can be, the report factual instead of emotionally or politically charged Definitely worth the read.

    18. Scattered, misleading, confusing, and boring Focused almost entirely on the post WW2 years and included an inordinate amount of CIA stories.
