Camp 020 - MI5 and the Nazi Spies

£14.99

Product description

This is the story of Latchmere House, code-name Camp 020, MI5's wartime holding centre where enemy agents were interrogated. Camp 020's extraordinary commandant, Major Robert Stephens, recorded details of over 400 spies, adding his own unique personal observations. Most agents were broken, some turned into double-agents and a few executed for treason. Major Stephens' methods included many classic psychological ruses - the stool pigeon, cross-ruff and sympathy men, but never physical violence. The book gives a unique insight into the worlds of espionage and spy-breaking and reveals details of a range of exotic characters motivated by greed, treachery and adventurism. An expert introduction provides background information on Stephens, Latchmere House and the enemy spies.

Pages are in very good condition. with faint pencil marks in the inside back cover. dust cover is intact and in good condition, but with some score marks. book cover is in very good condition, with silver text on the spine.
