Format: Hardcover
Ludwig Moyzisch tells his true story almost like a novel for reality here surpasses fiction. From October 28, 1943 until April 1944, Nazi Germany did get from the spy "Cicero" an inside view of the series of Allied conferences. These conference were sealing Nazi Germany's fate and the one of its leaders at Moscow (Cordell Hull, Anthony Eden, Molotov), in Cairo (F. D. Roosevelt, W. Churchill, Chiang kai-Shek), and in Tehran (F. D. Roosevelt, W. Churchill, Stalin). They were also sealing the fate of millions of human beings trying to prevent them of sliding in the communist iron fist which had already started enslaving and killing more innocent people than the nazis themselves ever would.
Cicero was personally handled by the author of the book, an attache at the German Embassy in Ankara (Turkey), who was paying the photos rolls (of documents from the British Ambassador's safe) for enormous sums.. in counterfeit Sterling Pounds. Contrary to the author's opinion, Cicero's photostats were taken very seriously in Berlin as, in December 1943, Hitler entered a conference with some of them stating that he knew for sure that the Allies would land in France by the end of the spring. He even knew the codename Overlord. Fortunately he didn't know the details.
Moyzisch is trying to hide that he was not a diplomatic public servant but an employee of Walter Schellenberg the young star of the Amt VI of the nazi RSHA (head office of the Gestapo: its Amt IV) heading German political espionage and personally advising Himmler, the architect of the genocide of Jewish people. The facts however are otherwise delivered in a very lively manner, making a thriller of the book.

An interesting look at a little known chapter of WW2 espionage. Moyzisch was a German attache in Ankara. He was approached by a man claiming to be the British Ambassador's valet, who offered to sell classified British documents. The Germans bought the documents with forged money. Curiously, they wondered if the documents were forgeries. They weren't. Former Ambassador Franz von Papen has written an introduction in which he urges the reader to take Moyzisch's account seriously.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is from the German official who dealt with "Cicero", the British spy in the Turkish embassy. It gives more and more accurate information than the movie starring James Mason as Cicero. The movie is the best WWII spy movie I've ever seen, but the book is even better. The movie is the same story from the British side. Anyone interested in true drama should read this one.
