History: The Role of British Intelligence

Class Details

Autumn Term only

The Duke of Marlborough wrote that “No war can ever be conducted without good and early intelligence”.  Thanks to Bletchley Park and James Bond, we are used to the idea that our foreign policy can rely on British strengths in acquiring information about our adversaries.  This series of talks will consider how our secret services have performed at times of crisis since the sixteenth century.  The story is not always so reassuring.
