Hitler's Spies

Hitler's Spies

A fascinating and action-packed account of a little-known part of South African history. At the outbreak of the Second World War, the German government secretly reached out to the leadership of the Ossewabrandwag, an anti-war and anti-British cultural movement in South Africa. The Nazis' aim was to spread sedition in the country to undermine the Allied war effort. To this end they offered weapons to the Ossewabrandwag and even sent a South African spy who had received sabotage training in Germany to the country. The Germans were also after naval intelligence about the route around the Cape where they would soon send their deadly U-boats. A network of spies was established by the Ossewabrandwag, who had members at the major ports and on the South African railways. Another anti-war group also managed to set up a radio transmitter to send coded messages to the Germans. This gripping account of the intelligence war in South Africa is filled with honey traps, sly diplomats, police hunts, dangerous escapes over rough country and the dramatics of the post-war hunt in Europe for witnesses who could help bring traitors to book.
