Description
Originally published in 1950, this is the gripping account by Sigismund Payne Best, a captain in Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, of a 1939 operation in the Netherlands. Best had been sent along with Richard Stevens to the Café Backus in Venlo, where he was to find German officers plotting to overthrow Hitler. Instead he and Stevens were betrayed and walked into a trap. The pair were tortured by the Gestapo and sat out the war at the Sachsenhausen prison camp, while the incident provided a handy excuse for Nazi Germany to invade the Netherlands. As Nigel Jones explains in his introduction, the Venlo Incident also served to make British intelligence suspicious of any future dealings with German anti-Hitler resistance.
