BRITISH SECURITY COORDINATION: THE SECRET HISTORY OF BRITISH INTELLIGENCE IN THE AMERICAS, 1940-1945

In 1940, Winston Churchill dispatched a Canadian industrialist to New York with an extraordinary mission: to set up a secret spy network across both North and South America to cripple and confound Nazi propaganda and to fan the flames of pro-war sentiment. Sir William Stephenson (of 'A man called Intrepid' fame) set up shop in Rockefeller Center and built a vast intelligence network known as 'British Security Coordination (BSC)', the full story of which is now told for the first time. Stephenson's mission came at a time when the United States was still deeply influenced by isolationism. Stephenson's people soon launched an astonishing bagful of dirty tricks, unmasking Axis spies and slipping beautiful female spies into the Vichy and Italian embassies in Washington. His agents infiltrated American labor unions, harassed political enemies in Congress, and fed British propaganda to such prominent journalists as Walter Winchell and Drew Pearson, who were happy to give them wide circulation. Much of this took place before the U.S. had entered the war, when the country was still neutral and British spying was illegal. President Roosevelt winked at the law, and FBI chief, J. Edgar Hoover collaborated as well, albeit reluctantly. After Pearl Harbor Stephenson helped William J. Donovan set up the OSS which eventually became the foundation of the CIA. In 1945 Stephenson ordered three of his subordinates, Gilbert Highet, Tom Hill and Roald Dahl, to prepare an official report on the network's activities, of which fewer than ten copies survived in utmost secrecy until today. With a foreword by Nigel West, this is the first time it has been made public in its complete and unexpurgated form.
