He lives in Wiltshire.
'Fascinating' * The Observer * 'The extent to which the British far right supported Hitler, even after the outbreak of the second world war, has largely been suppressed. Now Tim Tate's absorbing study offers a bracing reappraisal of their sympathies. ... Tate reveals the widespread existence of a fifth column in Britain, using hitherto unseen archival material.' * The Observer * 'Tim Tate, in Hitler's British Traitors, [explores] the entire grimy landscape of British treachery during the Second World War and the astonishing rogues' gallery of traitors working to help Nazi Germany win. [He makes] excellent use of the vast trove of material declassified by MI5 in recent years.' -- Ben Macintyre * The Times * '[A] fascinating, shocking and -- given our times -- slightly worrying read' * Sunday Sport * 'A brilliant book' -- Dan Snow * History Hit podcast * 'A superb book ... absolutely gripping' -- Iain Dale * Iain Dale's Book Club podcast * 'Fascinating' * The Herald * 'Tate explores many engrossing accounts of espionage and counter-espionage uncovered in the archives, as well as the jaw-dropping ineptitude and complacency of the authorities who, though all too keen to imprison and execute petty criminals recruited by German intelligence, displayed a characteristic restraint when dealing with far more threatening and powerful traitors. ... Tate's formidable scholarship paints a picture of Britain during the war that is a far cry from the reassuring story told about our collective heroism of a nation united under the banner of Keep Calm and Carry On.' * Morning Star * 'An unfailingly readable, darkly revealing book of great scholarship.' * The Tablet *
