BRITISH SECURITY COORDINATION: THE SECRET HISTORY OF BRITISH INTELLIGENCE IN THE AMERICAS, 1940-45

In 1940, Winston Churchill dispatched a Canadian industrialist to New York with an extraordinary mission: to set up a secret spy network across both North and South America to cripple and confound Nazi propaganda and to fan the flames of pro-war sentiment. Sir William Stephenson (of A Man Called Intrepid fame) set up shop in Rockefeller Center to build a vast intelligence network ~ British Security Coordination (BSC), the full story of which is now told for the first time. Stephenson's mission came at a time when the United States was still deeply influenced by isolationism. Stephenson's people soon launched an astonishing bagful of dirty tricks ~ they unmasked Axis spies, planted propaganda in American newspapers, and slipped beautiful female spies into the Vichy and Italian embassies in Washington. Stephenson's agents also infiltrated American labor unions, harassed their political enemies in Congress, and fed British propaganda and false rumors to such prominent journalists as Walter Winchel and Drew Pearson who were happy to give them wide circulation. Much of this took place before the U.S. had entered the war, when the country was still neutral territory and British spying was illegal. But President Roosevelt winked at the law, and FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover collaborated as well, though reluctantly. After Pearl Harbor Stephenson helped William J. Donovan set up the OSS which eventually became the foundation for the CIA. In 1945, Stephenson ordered three of his subordinates, Gilbert Highet, Tom Hill and Roald Dahl, to prepare an official report of the network's activities, of which fewer than ten copies survived all these years in utmost secrecy. This is the first time it has been made public in its complete and unexpurgated form. With a foreword by Nigel West.

THE HITLER/HESS DECEPTION
by Martin Allen

Acceptable in card covers, some rippling at the back. The author's researches into the flight of Rudolf Hess from Germany to a crash landing on a Scottish hillside in May 1941 have unearthed many previously undiscovered documents from archives in Germany, Britain and the United States. Hess's silence during his fifty years of imprisonment led to much speculation on the reasons for his flight which was publicly dismissed by Britain and Germany as the act of a disordered mind.

FALSE FLAG
by Zeev Avni

With an introduction by Nigel West, this is the inside story of the spy who worked for Moscow and the Israelis. A 'false flag' is the most complex and dangerous of intelligence operations: the recruitment of an agent who believes he is working for an entirely different country. Fluent in German, Zeev Avni's speciality in Mossad was to cultivate former Nazi military advisers rebuilding Egypt's army. None would have co-operated with him if they had suspected that he was an Israeli intelligence officer. Nor would Mossad have promoted him if it had realised that their star performer was a long-term mole who for years had haemorrhaged secrets to the Soviets. When Avni's triple life was eventually exposed, he was tried in secret and sentenced to fourteen years' imprisonment. Now, for the first time, he tells his unique story of duplicity and betrayal.
