This book traces the activities of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS/MI6) and the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) during the Suez Crisis, one of the most infamous episodes of British foreign policy. In doing so it identifies broader lessons not only about the events of 1956, but about the place of intelligence in strategy itself. It provides both an exploration of the relationship between intelligence and strategy at the conceptual level, and also a historical account, and strategic analysis of, the performance of the Joint Intelligence Committee and the Secret Intelligence Service during this time. Focusing on the period immediately before, during, and after the crisis, Danny Steed brings together a complete picture of intelligence story in Britain that has so far eluded comprehensive treatment in the Suez historiography. Through extensive consultation of declassified archival sources, a re-examination of often referred to sources, and the employment of oral history, this study identifies the most significant lessons about the use of intelligence revealed by the Suez Crisis.

Since World War I, Cyprus has played a crucial role in British defence strategy. Panagiotis Dimitrakis here introduces new research which reveals the role of British intelligence on Cyprus throughout the twentieth century. _x000D_ _x000D_ During World War II, Winston Churchill feared a German airborne assault after the fall of Crete in May 1941 and the SOE was called in to set up stay-behind guerrilla groups. In the 1950s, following the British withdrawal from Egypt, Cyprus became the new location for the British Middle East military headquarters and the sovereign bases on the island remained strategically important, contributing significantly to British strategic policy on the Middle East. Anthony Eden and Harold Macmillan subsequently witnessed the 1955-59 Archbishop Makarios and EOKA-led revolt and the decline of British power after the Suez crisis. Even after Cypriot independence was granted in 1960, RAF bombers carrying nuclear weapons, based on the island were the only deterrent capability of the Central Treaty Organisation (CENTO), a West-inspired alliance with member states including the United Kingdom, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan. _x000D_ _x000D_ Panagiotis Dimitrakis provides new perspectives on the Turkish invasion of July 1974, including the performance of British intelligence during the crisis. He unearths the policies of Harold Wilson and James Callaghan towards Greece, Turkey and the United States are unearthed with the help of the latest declassified archives, which show that Callaghan himself admitted to being deceived by the assurances of the Turkish government that they would not invade. As a result of the increased tensions between the Middle East and the West in the late twentieth century, Cyprus faced an asymmetric threat. In February 1978 the conflict at Larnaca Airport between the National Guard and an Egyptian anti-terrorist unit showed the world that a hostage crisis could damage considerably the relations of sovereign states. _x000D_ _x000D_ This book evaluates the integral role that Cyprus played in British military and security apparatus throughout the turbulent twentieth century. It will be an invaluable resource for readers of military history, contemporary strategy, security studies and regional studies of the Mediterranean and the Middle East._x000D_

Volume One of the Official History of the Joint Intelligence Committee draws upon a range of released and classified papers to produce the first, authoritative account of the way in which intelligence was used to inform policy. For almost 80 years the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) has been a central player in the secret machinery of the British Government, providing a co-ordinated intelligence service to policy makers, drawing upon the work of the intelligence agencies and Whitehall departments. Since its creation, reports from the JIC have contributed to almost every key foreign policy decision taken by the British Government. This volume covers the evolution of the JIC since 1936 and culminates with its role in the events of Suez in 1956. This book will be of much interest to students of intelligence studies, British politics, international diplomacy, security studies and International Relations in general. Dr Michael S. Goodman is Reader in Intelligence and International Affairs in the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. He is author or editor of five previous books, including the Routledge Companion to Intelligence Studies (2013).
