Table of contents

Cryptologia- " an excellent book with 11 organisational charts of intelligence units, four maps, an extensive bibliography including archival sources plus a competent index." The Journal of Military History "Stephen Harris"s book is the most formidable and scholarly account yet written about British intelligence operations in the Crimean War.

Soldiers of the Queen, Vol. 98 (Sept. 1999) "Attractively produced ... it is an interesting and competent work and is definitely recommended to all students of the Russian war."

The International History Review, Vol 22, No 2, June 2000 "Harris has done a careful and commendable job." Indiana University Victorian Studies "Harris"s specialized study is competently written and well-researchedshow more
