Welcome to the official site of historian Dr Helen Fry.
Helen has written and edited over 25 books. Her works cover the social history of the Second World War: British Intelligence and the secret war; spies and espionage; and MI9 escape and evasion.
Helen continues to bring fresh insight into the clandestine operations of WWII, including widespread coverage of the greatest deception of the war: the bugging of Hitler’s generals at Trent Park, North London.
Helen lives and works in London.
She is an ambassador for the Museum of Military Intelligence at Milton Bryan in Buckinghamshire
Because of her expertise in British Intelligence in WW1 and WWII, she has been involved in a number of documentaries – including David Jason’s Secret Service.
She has conducted advisory work for TV and drama; something which she particularly enjoys, as well as numerous radio broadcasts.
Helen has also written extensively about the 10,000 Germans who fought for Britain in WWII.
