Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
J.C. Masterman was chairman of the Double-Cross Committee at the height of World War Two. This is his account of the double agents, deception and counter-espionage which were key to the victory of D-Day.
Written as an official report for MI5 in 1945, originally published with the permission of the British Government over twenty years later, The Double-Cross System details the Allied handling of enemy agents and the British infiltration of Nazi spy-rings.
Telling the stories of the agents codenamed Zigzag, Tricycle, Garbo and Snow, Masterman also tells the story of a triumphant operation in the Second World War's intelligence effort.

This edition originally published: London: Pimlico, 1995. -Includes bibliographical references and index. -The Double-Cross System is the amazing true story of how British intelligence penetrated and practically operated Nazi German's spy network within the British Isles. With great imagination, care and precise coordination, the British were able to identify Nazi agents, induce many to defect, and supply Germany completely false information about bombings, battles, and even the D-Day invasion.
