Distinguished intelligence historian Christopher Andrew wrote the authorized history of MI5 Defend the Realm, charted the rise of the KGB in The Sword and the Shield, and now he has taken on the world! Andrew has written the first ever global history of intelligence The Secret World: A History of Intelligence. Join him in conversation with Spy Museum historian Vince Houghton for a look at three millennia of intelligence history from the spies of the Bible to the codebreakers of the Napoleonic wars and Bletchley Park to the new challenges posed in the 21st century. You may even learn which king’s decrypted correspondence was published in his lifetime as a political ploy.
