THE GERMAN INTELLIGENCE SERVICE
PLAYS ITS PART

fault before the assault on North Africa, when, so far as we could judge, the Germans had been taken by surprise. Now, at last, it had scored a real triumph.
To be able to provide the Operational Staff with an exact copy of a letter from a Vice-Chief of a General Staff to the Commander of an Army in the field (and such a letter as this one) was beyond the wildest hopes of any experienced intelligence officer -a fulfilment of the daydreams of his hopeful youth. Such information as the letter contained, if acted upon efficiently by the General Staff, might avert a disaster, or might result in the infliction of a crushing defeat on the Allies at a crucial moment in the war, and thus alter the whole history of the world.
It was for this reason that I had fought so hard against the suggestions that we should play safe, that we should use this plan to plant some minor misinformation contained in documents passing between officers of junior rank. If the letters that Major Martin had carried had been of that sort, not only might the Germans not have made the effort to get copies, but even if they had, they might not have relied on them when making strategic decisions. But what Sir Archibald Nye wrote to General Alexander must be true; the Vice-Chief of the Imperial General Staff must know what the Allied plans were-he could not be himself the victim of a"cover plan" or misinformed. If the German Intelligence Service swallowed these letters as genuine, they would have to "go to town" on them-and no General Staff which got such information with its Intelligence
