Masterman, J C - The Double-Cross System in the War of 1939 to 1945 - ( Item 130828 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2007. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. This book was first published by Yale University Press in 1972, and has appeared in many different editions since. This edition follows the text of the original, but with some minor changes. Masterman was the top civil servant reponsible for this branch of the UK's espionage network during the second world war. A memorandum on his department's achievements was required and this he wrote immediately before his retirement. Naturally it was a highly confidential document but now, many decades later, it was decided to allow publication. The reader will very surprised to find a text that is so readable, and to learn of a story that was so important. It was Masterman's talent, however, that has turned what would normally be a dry-as-dust government paper into something akin to a thriller ! Just under 200 pages of text, 18 pp prelims, a list of the many abbreviations used, and twelve pages of monochromes (17 pictures in all).
