Description
Sir Francis Walsingham's official title was principal secretary to Queen Elizabeth I, but in fact this tight-lipped Puritan was England's first modern spymaster, as military historian and Atlantic Monthly correspondent Stephen Budiansky portrays him here. Ruthless and fiercely loyal, Walsingham worked behind the scenes to undo Elizabeth's rival Mary Queen of Scots and to outwit Catholic Spain and France. Budiansky demonstrates Elizabeth's preference for using talented men over privileged ones, and emphasizes Walsingham's genius for covert operations: he pioneered techniques for using double agents, disinformation, and code-breaking science that remain staples of espionage.
