Description
With the declaration of war in 1939, a dashing young publisher named Tom Burns left his business for the Ministry of Information, the propaganda arm of the British secret services, and found himself in Madrid as press attaché at the British embassy. Spurred on by his deep love of Spain, he threw himself into the propaganda war against the Nazis, even as members of British counterintelligence questioned Burns's loyalties. Soon his activities began to involve more than just propaganda—a role grippingly depicted here by his son Jimmy Burns, the author of the Somerset Maugham Award winner The Land That Lost Its Heroes.

"Integrated with extant histories, Burns's new information depicts a historical setting of the kind of intrigue that tempts spy novelists such as Alan Furst.... Recounting his father's extracurricular work, the author levelly assesses their results without overrating their effect on Britain's strategic aim of keeping Spain neutral. The audience for WWII espionage should warm to Burns's tale."—Booklist
