His story contains all the hallmarks of classic spy adventureenciphered messages, secret inks, items concealed in cakesculminating in one of the greatest strategic deceptions in history.

Secret History Files is an exciting series from The National Archives that puts covert history in readers' hands. Dossiers previously classified as "Top Secret" are now available, with an explanatory introduction and background analysis by expert historians.
