Description based on print version record.

The story of the Cabinet Office, created in the depths of the Great War in December 1916, goes to the very heart of the British state over the last 100 years.

It has been at the centre of everything - war, intelligence, spy scandals, disputed elections, political crises, changes of Prime Minister.

The 11 Cabinet Secretaries have been Britain's true 'men of secrets', guiding and shaping their political masters, the Prime Ministers and keeping the British state stable and safe.

Written with unparalleled access to documents and personnel, this illustrated history will give readers an inside account of what has really gone on over the last 100 years.
