Sir Max Hastings talked about the significance of espionage for each side during World War II. He described how information was gathered and if it had an impact on the movement of physical forces. He also argued that the rise of electronic and radio communication made codebreakers equal to, if not more important, than spies on the ground. Mr. Hastings is the author of The Secret War: Spies, Ciphers, and Guerrillas, 1939-1945.

This General Raymond E. Mason Distinguished Lecture on World War II was the keynote address of the Espionage Symposium held at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans in conjunction with the 2016 International Conference on World War II, titled “1946: Year Zero-Triumph and Tragedy.” close
