The Untold Exploits of Britain's Most Daring Cold War Spy Mission
For forty tense years of Cold War in Europe a team of British Intelligence agents - from the three armed services, the SAS and the Foreign Office - working under diplomatic cover as liaison officer, ranged like pirates through Easy Germany, in uniform and unarmed. Their target: the massive military strength assembled on German soil by the Soviets for a potential invasion of the West. These few men gathered a mass of military intelligence information; their efforts met with a violent Soviet response.
Based on privileged access to official files and photographs, Tony Geraghty is the only man able to get inside 'Brixmis' - the British Military Exchange Mission. More astonishing than and every bit as readable as the best spy fiction, the story he has uncovered is nothing less than the secret history of Britain's victory in the Cold War.
