Prior to the First World War, even official government agents had a reputation for being misfits and rum characters and the whole spying profession was deeply distrusted. However, a growing fear of Germany encouraged an escalation in international espionage and when war broke out, spies of every nationality were at work all over Europe. This book examines the secret side of the Great War from the founding of MI5 and MI6 to the stories of celebrated agents such as Mata Hari.
