About this item

"This is the first-ever analytical study of ****** Germany's political foreign intelligence service, Office VI of the Reichssicherheitshauptamt and its head, Walter Schellenberg. Katrin Paehler tells the story of Schellenberg's career in policing and intelligence, charts the development and activities of the service he eventually headed, and discusses his attempts to place it at the center of ****** foreign intelligence and foreign policy. The book locates the service in its proper pedigree of the SS as wellas in relation to its two main rivals - the Abwehr and the Auswèartige Amt. It also considers the role ****** ideology played in the conceptualization and execution of foreign intelligence, revealing how this ideological prism fractured and distorted Office VI's view of the world. The book is based in contemporary and postwar documents - many recently declassified - from archives in the United States, Germany, and Russia."--Provided by publisher.
