William Cecil: The Power Behind Elizabeth. On p. 167, Alford argues that Cecil "singlehandedly" ran the secret service and intelligence gathering in the age of Elizabeth I. This is patently untrue, as Sir Francis Walsingham was Elizabeth's spymaster

William Cecil: The Power Behind Elizabeth. This is patently untrue, as Sir Francis Walsingham was Elizabeth's spymaster. Alford's "Burghley" brims with quotable material, because he uses primary sources.

William Cecil was quite a facinating character, in fact I had to remind myself more than once that the book was nonfiction. It's obvious that Stephen Alford has spent considerable time and effort gathering the content for this book, but the way it's delivered is what makes it special. Well done! 9 people found this helpful.

An essential study of Cecil and the Elizabethan court, especially with regard to the establishment of English international power and the defeat of the Armada. From the preface: "It was an ironical fate to achieve while living a flame of the very first magnitude, only to have it consistently debased by posterity: to be acknowledged by contemporaries as the virtual 'Ruler of England' throughout the period that was most decisive in the nation's development, then to be reduced in history to little more than a faithful flunkey; painstaking, astute, patriotic (if you will); but essentially a figure in the background; a minor character in the drama; a necessary but obscure adjunct."
