Michael Smith is the number one best-selling author of a wide variety of books on spies and special forces. He served in British military intelligence before becoming an award-winning journalist, working for the BBC, the Daily Telegraph and the Sunday Times.
Smith uncovered the Downing Street Memos, which exposed the truth about the intelligence used to justify the war in Iraq and the scandal of the secret air war fought long before either Congress or the UK Parliament backed military action.
Michael Smith is on the board of the Bletchley Park Trust and is chair of its historical advisory group. He is also a visiting Fellow of Kellogg College, Oxford.
