1 Review
An intelligence agency exposť so explosive that the British government tried to stop its publication or the first time ever, MI6, Britain's legendary player at the chessboard of international intelligence-gathering, is revealed in fascinating detail. Fifteen years of painstaking and meticulous research on the notoriously elusive organization comes together in a vivid and shocking portrait that differs radically from the sleek and flawless fictionalized portraits of Her Majesty's Secret Service. This no-holds-barred exposť of the agency's operations and methods describes in riveting detail its impact on the history and politics of the last half century. Stephen Dorril's daring and prodigious research has unearthed startling information, including:

? The recruitment of assets and agents of influence around the world

? MI6's relationships with national leaders, including Nelson Mandela

? A secret deal between London and Washington to keep British troops out of Vietnam

? Details about failed plots to assassinate Nasser, Milosevic, and Gaddifi

? Why MI6 was unable to provide advance warning of the Iranian Revolution or Argentina's plan to invade the Falklands

? MI6's operations to bring Nazi collaborators and war criminals to Britain after the war

MI6 lifts the veil surrounding the closely guarded espionage efforts that have shaped and continue to affect our world for better...and for worse.

Before I rate this book, I am going to read it at least five times and share it with my family and friends who were members of the NTS just to see if there is any hint of slander or libel about this literature from Stephen Dorril. The first thing we are going to review is Dorril's background, his ideology, his previous books (if any), and any pertinent information which we may use. I have a question for those new to this topic: "If Radio Free Russia and Radio Liberte were unsuccessful, then why did the Soviets make every attempt to jam the signals on the short wave band? Why did the Soviets finally convince the West German government to do away with those two radio stations which were manned by NTS members via diplomatic channels? We have all of the proof positive evidence that this is so, and we will use it. We also have proof positive evidence that the Soviet secret police kidnapped members of the NTS or use bomb threats against us? We will read, and if we find anything libelous, we may sue for libel. All of the evidence we have will be provided at the Court of Law. Thank you very much.

Post Script: At the moment, we do not wish to communicate with the author. If the author insists, the best bet would be in the communication between two barristers. Perhaps the author wrote an informative book that is free of backbiting slander. I hope that this is so for all of the parties concerned.
