This is a nice survey of double agents working on the Brit side during WW2. It seems most were betraying Hitler's new barbarians, in the spy game. Or is that the victors writing the history? Useful book in giving a good account of which of these many stories are most interesting. Eric Chapman's is certainly one, and so is that of a Pole who did much for the French and the Brits, unbeknownst to the Germans. One of those hyper-talented Poles who did so much for the Allied side. Having read about the Kosciusko Squadron and a bit about the Polish contribution at Monte Cassino, I wonder if there was any people who was more deeply betrayed by their allies than the Poles - who still fought on Bush II's side in Iraq, no doubt harbouring some illusion about a 'special understanding' with the US that might help them against any next time. More to come, as I'm only half way through this.....
