Ernest Volkman is a military intelligence specialist and respected author, broadcaster, and correspondent.

While the golden age of spying reached its zenith during the Cold War, spies have been documented as far back as Biblical times, and have been used in ever war since, and are not considered essential to any country's national defence. The earliest recorded use of spies, up to today's survellience society, is covered in this book, which includes : Military Scouts, captured documents, bugging devices, honey traps, hidden tunnels, secret camers and poison . and a whole host of characters thorugh a thousand-year span, including Hannibal, Christopher Marlowe, Napoleon, Abraham Lincoln, Alexander Litvinenko, and many many more .
