INTELLIGENCE IN WAR Knowledge of the Enemy from Napoleon to Al-Quaeda

by | Read by Simon Prebble

History • 9 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

In this interesting history of the collection, distribution, and use of military secret intelligence, Keegan posits that in warfare intelligence may often be a critical element, but seldom is it a decisive one. Intriguing case studies ranging from the Battle of the Nile to the WWII U-boat campaign in the Atlantic support his thesis. Simon Prebble offers a seamless reading of a seamless abridgment. Except for delivering an occasional quote in a convincing Churchillian voice, Prebble gives a straightforward narration in the rich voice that we have come to associate with his Earphones-winning performances. History buffs will stay glued to their headsets, and others just may be intrigued as well. R.E.K.
