During the Second World War, to prevent German interception, all transatlantic telephone lines were disconnected except one: the hotline between Churchill and Roosevelt. Even this was censored. It was the job of a young stenographer, Ruth Ive, to listen in and cut the line should either leader let slip information that might compromise security. Now, after decades of silence under the Official Secrets Act, she can finally tell the fascinating story of her top secret and vitally important wartime service.
