CHRISTOPHER J. MURPHY is currently an independent scholar, and was formerly Leverhulme Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Contemporary British History at the Institute of Historical Research.


' Security and Special Operations is a significant addition to the burgeoning literature of the history of the Special Operations Executive. Using recently declassified files from MI5 and SOE documents at the National Archives, Christopher Murphy is able to shed much new light on the troubled relationship between SOE, MI5 and SIS (MI6) during the Second World War, particularly over security issues.' - Richard Thurlow, University of Sheffield, UK
