Synopsis

An Undercover History of Spies and Secret Agents by Rachel Minay

Take a chronological look at a whole host of spies and secret agents. Blast around the world with the brave (and sometimes slightly foolish) men and women who double-crossed their governments, cracked 'unbreakable' codes, donned disguises, and more. Discover if you would have had what it takes to be a real life James Bond, be a mole who might wait years to become 'active in the field', send covert signals or try and overthrow the queen of England! Blast Through the Past takes a look at some of the weird jobs people in the past had to do and the skills they needed in order to explore new lands, win battles or make amazing breakthroughs in science. Get under the skin of the most famous and infamous, the cleverest and some of the the barmiest people who have shaped history. Blast Through the Past is a series aimed at children aged 8+. These books build historical skills at Key Stage 2 by encouraging children to consider cause and effect, and why certain events happened at certain times.
