The best-selling author of M: Maxwell Knight - MI5’s Greatest Spymaster, tells the story of a propaganda campaign like no other: the covert British operation to manipulate American public opinion and bring the US into World War II. He’ll share for the first time riveting facts about MI6’s plans to secure aid for Britain and ‘organise’ American public opinion, using access to hitherto private and classified documents, including the diaries of his own grandparents, and the work of William Stephenson, whose unique brilliance and daring work changed the course of history.
