The Secret Twenties : British Intelligence, the Russians and the Jazz Age Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In the 1920s, many in the British establishment became convinced that their way of life was being threatened by the new Soviet state.

The British government launched vast spying operations in response, carrying out surveillance on not only suspect Russians, but British aristocrats, Bloomsbury artists, ordinary workers and even MPs.

What they discovered had profound ramifications for the whole of British society, dividing the nation and laying the foundations for the later Cold War. Drawing on a wealth of recently declassified archives, The Secret Twenties tells the story of the first Soviet spies and the double agents in their midst, all of it set against the sparkling backdrop of cocktail-era London.
