Secrets of a German PoW
Available in Stock
Captured in North Africa in 1942, Herbert Cleff was interrogated by the British and began to reveal interesting information about German developments in aeronautics, missiles and fuel technology. Transferred to London he was taken sufficiently seriously to be living a civilian life by 1943 and working in Whitehall. This book investigates Cleff's life, his likely knowledge and his wartime claims in an attempt to ascertain whether he was genuinely passing on secrets, deliberately planting misinformation or was merely a fantasist.
