From the Jacket

A classic about real-life WWII espionage, as conducted by its modern master


“James Bond is a highly romanticized version of a true spy. The real thing is William Stephenson."
—Ian Fleming, bestselling author of the James Bond novels
 

“A splendid book. Rich in information. . . . profound in its implications."
—San Francisco Chronicle


“As long as Americans value courage and freedom there will be a special place in our hearts, our minds, and our history books for the ‘Man Called Intrepid.' "
—Ronald Reagan 


A Man Called Intrepid is the true story of Sir William Stephenson (code-named Intrepid) and the spy network he founded that would ultimately stall the Nazi war machine and help win World War II. Illustrated with thirty-two pages of black-and-white photographs, it describes the infamous “Camp X" spy training center in Ontario, Canada; the breaking of the Ultra Code used by Enigma; and countless tales of assassinations, clandestine activities, guerrilla armies, resistance support, and suicide missions. This modern classic, which reads like fiction, was a national bestseller when first published in 1976.

About the Author

William Stevenson (no relation to the subject of this book) was trained in aerial espionage as a British fighter pilot in World War II. A distinguished journalist and war correspondent, he is the author of sixteen books, including Intrepid's Last Case (Lyons) and Ninety Minutes at Entebbe.
