MASK : MI5's penetration of the Communist Party of Great Britain by Nigel West( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The content of these secret messages were of immense use to the very limited group of people who had access to it, but of greatest interest to MI5 and Stanley Baldwin's Cabinet was the material passing to and from the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB), which was monitored from a covert intercept station located on Denmark Hill, south London. Its principal target was the daily wireless traffic of a clandestine transmitter based in Wimbledon and operated by a member of the CPGB's underground cell, controlled by a Scot, Bob Stewart."

TRIPLEX : secrets from the Cambridge spies by Nigel West( )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

TRIPLEX reveals more clearly than ever before the precise nature and extent of the damage done to the much-vaunted British intelligence establishment during World War II by the notorious 'Cambridge Five' spy ring - Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Anthony Blunt, and John Cairncross. The code word TRIPLEX refers to an exceptionally sensitive intelligence source, one of the most closely guarded secrets of the war, which appears nowhere in any of the British government's official histories. TRIPLEX was material extracted illicitly from the diplomatic pouches of neutral missions in wartime London. MI5, the British Security Service, entrusted the job of overseeing the highly secret assignment to Anthony Blunt, who was already working for the NKVD, Stalin's intelligence service. The rest is history, documented here for the first time in rich detail

Operation GARBO : the personal story of the most successful double agent of World War II by Juan Pujol( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Juan Pujol, a.k.a. Juan Pujol Garcia, was born in Barcelona to Joan Pujol and Mercedes Guijarro Garcia. He was better known as Garbo, was perhaps the most influential spy of World War II. By feeding false information to the Germans on the eve of the D-Day landings he ensured their absence in great numbers from Normandy’s beaches. This allowed the Allied push against Hitler to begin. Amazingly, Garbo’s cover was never broken. After the war Juan Pujol Garcia faked his own death and moved to Venezuela where he opened a book store. He died in Caracas in 1988
Mortal crimes : the greatest theft in history : Soviet penetration of the Manhattan Project by Nigel West( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How did Soviet spies steal the secrets of the atomic bomb? Since the convictions of Allan Nunn May, Klaus Fuchs and the Rosenbergs it has been assumed that only a handful of ideologically motivated, relatively low-echelon spies were responsible for passing the information to Moscow. But following the recent declassification of documents in Russia, Britain, and the United States a more complex picture emerges of wholesale espionage and deep penetration into almost every level of the Manhattan Project." "Who were the spies, what did they betray, and how were they handled by their Russian controllers? Mortal Crimes documents the molehunts, explains how the cryptographers traced obscure clues in intercepted cable traffic to identify the suspects, and placed hundreds of Communist sympathizers under sophisticated surveillance, yet still failed to prevent Stalin from pulling off the greatest theft in history."--Jacket

Sixty years after
Garbo the spy( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Allies called him Garbo. The Nazis dubbed him Alaric. Both sides in World War II were sure Juan Pujol Garcia was their man. In reality, Pujol was a double agent and his final allegiance was to the Allies. From the relative comfort of Lisbon, Garbo fed false information to the Nazis and fabricated a network of phantom agents across Europe. Although he never fired a single shot, Garbo helped to save thousands of lives, most notably by misinforming the Germans about the timing and location of the Normandy D-Day invasion. In his inexhaustible imagination he even went so far as to secure death benefits from the Nazis for an imaginary agent's nonexistent widow. In this documentary thriller, director Edmon Roch artfully interweaves propaganda footage, interviews with intelligence experts and key players in Garbo's life (as well as with Garbo himself), and clips from Hollywood films to conjure forgotten and living memories, heroes and spies, secrets and lies
