Notes on the Double Agent

Juan Pujol was a Spaniard commissioned by the German intelligence service to build an agent network in Britain during WWII. With the aid of MI5, the British intelligence service, he invented a fictive 26 agent network that reported from as far as Ceylon and Canada until VE day. One of the Abwehr's favourite agents, his reports made it all the way to Hitler and were instrumental in the allied strategy for D-Day.
