"I knew what she must mean, a spy, and for a moment I was filled with horror. I knew that spies existed in Belgium and that they were serving their country, yet somehow I had regarded them as inhuman and far removed from my own sphere.' Marthe McKenna

"If you do well, you'll get no thanks. If you get into trouble, you'll get no help.' Advice to Somerset Maugham

When Colonel James Edmonds argued for a British secret service in 1907, officials mocked that he had "espionage on the brain". But fracturing European relations and the resulting explosion in spy activity were to prove Edmonds' prescience. By the time of the First World War undercover agents operated in cities from Geneva to Paris, New York to Moscow, and German spies were being shot in the Tower of London. Spies of the First World War balances accessible history of a profession fashioned by conflict with human stories of heroism and cowardice, brilliance and incompetence, loyalty and betrayal.

Spies of the First World War is the first popular history of international espionage in the early twentieth century.
