The New York Times–bestselling classic biography of the WWII superspy whose vast intelligence network helped defeat the Nazis.

Soon after World War II began, Winston Churchill sent William Stephenson to America with the mission of creating and leading British Security Coordination, the world's first international intelligence network. Codenamed Intrepid, Stephenson ran the vast network from the British Passport Control Office in New York City's Rockefeller Plaza. He soon became a close advisor to President Roosevelt and helped found the U.S. agency that would become the CIA.

First published in 1976, A Man Called Intrepid was an immediate bestseller. With over thirty black-and-white photographs and countless World War II secrets, this book revealed startling information that had remained buried for decades. Detailing the infamous "Camp X" training center in Ontario, Canada; the miraculous breaking of the Ultra Code used by the Enigma Machine; and dozens of other stories of clandestine missions, A Man Called Intrepid is an undisputed modern classic.

"James Bond is a highly romanticized version of a true spy. The real thing is William Stephenson." —Ian Fleming
