Description

A classic about real-life WWII espionage, as conducted by its modern master"James Bond is a highly romanticized version of a true spy. The real thing is William Stephenson."--Ian Fleming, bestselling author of the James Bond novels "A splendid book. Rich in information. . . . profound in its implications."--San Francisco Chronicle"As long as Americans value courage and freedom there will be a special place in our hearts, our minds, and our history books for the 'Man Called Intrepid.' "--Ronald Reagan A Man Called Intrepid is the true story of Sir William Stephenson (code-named Intrepid) and the spy network he founded that would ultimately stall the Nazi war machine and help win World War II. Illustrated with thirty-two pages of black-and-white photographs, it describes the infamous "Camp X" spy training center in Ontario, Canada; the breaking of the Ultra Code used by Enigma; and countless tales of assassinations, clandestine activities, guerrilla armies, resistance support, and suicide missions. This modern classic, which reads like fiction, was a national bestseller when first published in 1976.
