The true extent of Nazi secret agent activity in Britain during the Second World War has received little attention. In large part this is due to the highly classified nature of the subject. This fascinating book uses recently released documents to explore how German agents penetrated our borders and explains methods of agent recruitment.

Some spies were arrested and handed over the MI5 for interrogation. Several were turned and became ‘double-cross’ agents, while others were tried and executed or incarcerated in Camp 020 and other facilities. There were also those who came and left undetected and were only revealed after Nazi records were seized.

The story, however, does not end there. While British authorities urged the public to beware of spies and posters warned ‘careless talk costs lives,’ the actual existence of Nazi collaborators in Britain was played down. Author Neil R Storey’s discovery of MI5’s and Regional Security Panels’ ‘Black Lists’ of those considered to be ‘likely to assist the enemy’ in the event of invasion reveals the climate of fear along with the identities and case studies of suspected Nazi collaborators in key invasion areas.

This book is a gripping exposé of the very real threat posed by Nazi undercover operatives and collaborators in Britain during the Second World War.

4 out of 5

I found that this was an interesting book, with much information regarding the period, for which I award it 4 stars.

Being there . . . . in Britain after the Fall of France for the onslaught of German espionage and
collaborative activities in preparation for Hitler’s invasion certain to come. Via some of the best narration of 2023, participate in Churchill’s brilliant counter-espionage activities, some of which were still classified until recently, almost 80 years after World War II’s end.

If you're running some sort of WWII spy campaign, or even a pre-war campaign, this would be a handy reference source for period information on people, clubs, and activities.
