In this meticulously researched and highly readable book, Peis examines the fascinating and little-known story of British counter-espionage against the Nazi regime. He demonstrates how the British essentially turned their own secret spy machine against themselves, allowing the Germans to identify and eventually catch their most important operatives. Not only did this allow the Nazis to carry out their nefarious schemes with greater success, but it also left the British open to attack by their enemies once the war was over. Peis has written a brilliantly original and insightful book that will fascinate anyone interested in the history of espionage or the workings of the Nazi regime.; 8vo ; 190 pages.
