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.
