But what was this world really like for those who chose to be a part of it? These short portraits, selected from the “Dict. of National Biography” provide a fascinating peek into real lives from worlds of secret intelligence. Entries include: Benedict Ginsburg on Edith Cavell; Christopher Andrew on Sir Mansfield Cumming; Frank Longford on Eamon de Valera; Sidney Lee on Guy Fawkes; Peter Wilkinson on Sir Colin Gubbins; Robert Cecil on Donald Maclean; Nigel Clive on ‘Kim’ Philby; William Carr on Arthur Thistlewood; & John Hamilton on William Windham.
