This period saw some of the most important events of the Second World War, and few were fully aware of the decisions that were to affect the outcome of a global conflict. Yet a young wartime secretary, Olive Christopher, spent this remarkable time working in Churchill's famous Cabinet War Rooms, where she was one of a tiny inner circle of people party to the political secrets of the crucial final years of the Second World War. Working long hours in an underground bunker opposite St James's Park, Olive wrote a series of letters to her fiance, a major in the armed forces and posted abroad. Filled with incredible details about the glamorous lifesytle and travel Olive enjoyed because of the seriousness of her job, these letter form an astonishing record of how an ordinary girl could become privy to the most secret aspects of the Second World War.
