Empire of Secrets

British Intelligence, the Cold War, and the Twilight of Empire

Calder Walton

Against the backdrop of the Cold War, Britain viewed the nationalist insurgencies shaking its dwindling colonial possessions as Soviet-backed subversion. Drawing on a wealth of top-secret documents and previously overlooked personal papers, this history charts the crucial but unseen role of MI5 in the campaigns waged by British troops in the jungles of Malaya and Kenya and on the streets of Aden, Cyprus and Palestine, uncovering some of the dark secrets of the dying empire. Off-mint.
