British Military Intelligence: Objects from the Military Intelligence Museum
The Intelligence Corps has been involved in special operations from its earliest days and has close links with elite military units and various government agencies. During World War II, it provided linguists and analysts to Bletchley Park as well as agents, instructors and security staff to the SOE. This book tells the story behind items in the Military Intelligence Museum's collection including Himmler's shaving brush, a Warsaw Pact ZIL radio lorry and a model of Smokey Joe's - a listening post manned by Intelligence Corps that intercepted Soviet telephone messages in Vienna.
The varied and exciting involvement played by the Intelligence Corps in covert operations and the author's own experiences as an intelligence officer make this book a compelling and revealing read for anyone interested in military history.
