Extensive research and hundreds of interviews substantiate a detailed inside account of the activities, successes and failures of Britain's overseas intelligence gathering services, particularly during World War II
“Confessions of an MI6 Agent” is a fictional life journey of a voluptuous English spy named Eileen Zimmerman. Eileen was desperately seeking revenge for the bombing of London that killed her family members and for the dreadful “Jewish Holocaust.” She worked her way up to become an MI6 agent assigned to New York to work in conjunction with the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC to entice the Americans to fight the war in Europe. As a writer of a fictional story I was infatuated to produce a great character which has all the human elements of good and bad, generous, selfish, moral, and immoral, sexy and promiscuous, reserved and intelligent. I aimed to create a protagonist with a soft heart for human kind but confused by her past traumatic misfortunes. There were times which she desperately searched to rectify her past behavior, but she couldn’t refrain herself from abandoning her well-structured lies and deceptions.

The author of GCHG describes covert missions that “are worthy of spy fiction, but the entire book is utterly fascinating and informative. Brilliant!” (Books Monthly) Written by the renowned expert Nigel West, this book exposes the operations of Britain’s overseas intelligence-gathering organization, the famed Secret Intelligence Service, MI6, and traces its origins back to its inception in 1909. In this meticulously researched account, its activities and structure are described in detail, using original secret service documents. The main body of the book concerns MI6’s operations during the Second World War, and includes some remarkable successes and failures, including how MI6 financed a glamorous confidant of the German secret service; how a suspected French traitor was murdered by mistake; how Franco’s military advisors were bribed to keep Spain out of the war; how members of the Swedish secret police were blackmailed into helping the British war effort; how a sabotage operation in neutral Tangiers enabled the Allied landings in North Africa to proceed undetected; and how Britain’s generals ignored the first ULTRA decrypts because MI6 said that the information had come from “a well-placed source called BONIFACE.” In this new edition, operations undertaken by almost all of MI6’s overseas stations are recounted in extraordinary detail. They will fascinate both the professional intelligence officer and the general reader. The book includes organizational charts to illustrate MI6’s internal structure and its wartime network of overseas stations. Backed by numerous interviews with intelligence officers and their agents, this engaging inside story throws light on many wartime incidents that had previously remained unexplained. “[An] extraordinary book.” —The Daily Telegraph “Fascinating reading.” —Firetrench
