Introduction

This series reveals a unique range of perspectives which challenge what we 'know' about the wars. Events that may seem familiar become far less familiar when viewed through the eyes of intelligence officers, diplomats and conscientious objectors. See what the intelligence services knew about foreign firepower and learn about the rise of fascism in Britain during the 1930s.
