Description
Against the backdrop of the Cold War and the looming specter of Soviet dominance in Britain's dwindling colonial possessions, the imperial intelligence service MI5 played a crucial but virtually unseen role in tipping the scales in favor of America and her allies. Intelligence historian Calder Walton reveals how Britain contributed largely silently yet stunningly effectively to the Cold War effort, their victories as invisible to the larger world as their defeats. He sheds new light on everything from violent counterinsurgencies fought by British forces in the jungles of Malaya and Kenya to urban warfare campaigns conducted in Palestine and the Arabian Peninsula.

"Walton is a very good writer. Empire of Secrets fairly rips along, summoning in places the verve of a good spy novel.... It is to his credit that he has produced such a gripping, thoughtful and satisfying book on an aspect of British history still largely hidden by shadow."Daily Telegraph (London)
