Most Secret War [9780141042824]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'Among the best of all war books' - Observer

'One of the classics of the second world war' - Daily Telegraph

Reginald Jones was nothing less than a genius. And his appointment to the Intelligence Section of Britain's Air Ministry in 1939 led to some of the most astonishing scientific and technological breakthroughs of the Second World War.

In Most Secret War he details how Britain stealthy stole the war from under the Germans' nose by outsmarting their intelligence at every turn. He tells of the 'battle of the beams', detecting and defeating flying bombs, using chaff to confuse radar, and many other ingenious ideas and devices.

Pitting himself in a desperate battle of wits against hos Nazi counterparts, Jones was the man with the plan to save Britain. His story makes for riveting reading.

'Every bit as good as a Deighton or Le Carre yarn' - Guardian

'A blockbuster of a book' - M. R. D. Foot

'The most fascinating book on the second world war that I have ever read' - A. J. P. Taylor


AUTHOR: Reginald Victor Jones was an English physicist and scientific military intelligence expert who played an important role in the defence of Britain in the Second World War. He died in 1997.
