Roland Chambers' The Last Englishman explores the astonishing double-life of Arthur Ransome, writer of the nostalgic Swallows and Amazons, communist sympathiser, lover of Trotsky's secretary and a spy in Russia. Ben Macintyre, author of the acclaimed Agent Zigzag, tells the story of one of World War II's most audacious hoaxes, Operation Mincemeat, which duped the Germans with a corpse bearing fictional military plans. They discuss the British talent for espionage and deception, from Marlow in the 16th century to Ian Fleming (an officer in the department that devised Operation Mincemeat) in the 20th.
