DEFEND THE REALM The Authorized History of MI5

by | Read by Robin Sachs

Contemporary Culture • 39.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Andrew provides a fascinating, exhaustive history of the preeminent British counterintelligence and security agency from its inception to the present day. Despite its length—the book covers a hundred years—the text will hold listeners’ attention, especially those interested in espionage and the preservation of national security. The audio production has the added advantage of the impeccably British Robin Sachs. Lucid, engaging, he’s a narrator who knows how to handle cadence. His delivery reflects the gravitas of the subject: protecting the British realm from the likes of German spies, Communist insurgents, and IRA terrorists. There are many movies and radio dramas featuring fictional spy agencies—this one is the real thing. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
