Unbelievable but true.
16 July 2014
This well written story based on the released documents of MI5 operations during World War two is quite extraordinary. It is all about personalities. The extraordinary character of the spies themselves and the equally extraordinary ability of MI5 case officers who managed them.
I have often been struck by the narrow margin by which Britain prevailed over Germany in the Battle of Britain. This book provides insight to the circumstances by which the British confused the Third Reich, especially in preparation for the D-day landings. A remarkable record of deceit and cunning in the interests of survival. Highly recommended.
