BRITISH INTELLIGENCE DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR

Tom Maguire Gonville & Caius College tjm51@cam.ac.uk 07900203483

Supervisions will be conducted on Friday afternoons, although if necessary and if possible an alternative arrangement can be made on an individual basis. Please answer ONE question. Essays should be approximately 3000 words in length. By 6 PM on the day preceding the supervision, ideally an electronic copy should be sent to my email address or, if this is not possible, a paper copy should be dropped off at the Caius College Porters‘ Lodge. Feel free to go beyond the reading lists – these are only for guidance – see what works other scholars have cited. If you would like to propose your own question, you may do so, but please check with me beforehand. Supervisions will generally be conducted at Caius College, unless I indicate otherwise.
