A Man Called Intrepid by William Stevenson

William Stephenson bore the code name Intrepid during World War II. He earned a British knighthood and the Medal for Merit from the United States, among other honors, for his work. A Man Called Intrepid tells the behind the scenes story of the war and some of the spy missions and intelligence gathering involved. It answers some questions of why things were done the way they were. Sometimes the writing can be long-winded, but for the most part, this is a very interesting book. I recommend it to people interested in World War II.
