This book discusses intelligence operations in different periods of the twentieth century. Germany, for reasons related to iets key position among European powers and its strategic location during the Cold War, has been an important intelligence battleground throughout the century. During the First World War and in the interwar period, the Netherlands was a strategically important country in the intelligence field as well.At the end of the 1930s, the country saw mucht activity of German, French and British intelligence services which culminated in the infamous Venlo Incident of November 1939. From the onset of the Cold War, the Netherlands was a second-tier NATO ally with a much smaller intelligence community than neighbouring West Germany, as the frontline of intelligence operations in many ways shifted tot the border between the two German states. Still, the Netherlands proved a loyal member of the Western alliance and its services maintained close ties to the CIA. The country became a target for intelligence services like the East German Stasi and terrorist cells somtimes sought shelter there. This volume throws light on a lesserknown aspect of the history of Western Europe and looks at Germany and the Netherlands as the terrain on which some crucial intelligence battles where fought.
