Accused of spying for Germany in 1942, Dutchman Johannes Marinus Dronkers was convicted of espionage at the Old Bailey and executed. Why he was not 'turned' and used as a double agent as many other agents were or simply interned raises questions about how the British authorities handled the case. This investigation utilizes newly available official files to tell the story of his recruitment by the Abwehr, capture, interrogation and trial, and considers whether high-level political interference influenced his fate.
