    In 1921 MI5 commissioned a comprehensive report on the organization's operations during the First World War. Never intended for circulation outside of the government, this document has now been declassified and is published here for the first time. The main narrative examines the secret service's attempts to manage and detect double agents and the apprehension and execution of enemy spies, and also contains a review of German pre-war espionage and the endeavours of the Kaiser's personal agents to infiltrate British intelligence.
