MI5 in the Great War
Available in Stock
In 1921 MI5 commissioned a comprehensive report on its own operations during the First World War. Never intended for circulation outside of the government, this document has now been declassified and is published here in an edited version, introduced by Nigel West. The main narrative examines attempts to manage and detect double agents and the apprehension and execution of enemy spies, but the report also contains a unique account of the Kaiser's pre-war and wartime intelligence offensive.
