Spies for Nippon: Japanese Espionage Against the West, 1939-1945 Paperback – November 1, 2010
"Spies for Nippon" reveals the remarkable story of Japanese spy rings operating through Spanish embassies and consulates in Britain, America and Australia during the Second World War. Details of these rings have been a closely guarded secret since the end of the war, but revealing documents from the American National Archives now show how Japan manipulated missions abroad to wreak destruction on the Allies. There is no doubt from the mass of secret information now available, that the spy network (code-named TO), which was controlled from Madrid, provided the Japanese and Germans with a vast amount of top quality information. As a result many lives were lost, particularly during the terrible convoy crossings, and from shipping sunk by Japanese submarines in Australian waters. This book investigates the depth of the TO network, how it operated and who the operators were. Sources include documents which have so far never been made available to the public and many which have, until recently, been classified as top secret.

I'm offering this split personality review because the book is really great for what it is, but you may be looking for a "popular history", which this is not. This is a fantastic academic history. A tremendous amount of information has been collected and presented in an organized way, with plenty of footnotes. You can see how the Japanese struggled to set up and maintain an intelligence network. But it's not a relatable story, not dramatic, not exciting, because it's not meant to be.
Hopefully this will help you know whether this book is for you.
However, if you not only have a designated target but track his movements, when do you see that surveillance, is it in real time as he moves and if so, do you need a base on the ground to receive the feed? So target in Boston requires a screening room in Boston?
But precious melon has relocated to New York City so the screening room for the toclafane could be in New York now. But not an embassy like the old days despite the diplomatic protection because it would be targeted for surveillance. A building they own through an operative maybe with a foreign wife.
It's another reason the German request to have a consulate in Uighur territory should not be granted.
"Google is about to get an eye in the sky powerful enough to see your face, thanks to updated satellite imaging laws and a new satellite set to launch later this week.
After lobbying the federal government to green-light a halving of the satellite imaging zoom limit to 25 cm resolution earlier this year, satellite company DigitalGlobe will launch a new satellite Wednesday capable of shooting the new images, which will show in detail objects as small as 10 inches, according to Motherboard.
Among its customers DigitalGlobe counts multiple federal agencies, NASA, Microsoft and Google, which signed a new multi-year contract to obtain images for Google Earth, Maps and Street View earlier this year.
The company, which already has five satellites in orbit, is currently lobbying to reduce the resolution down to 10 cm, or the size of a smartphone, according to the report.
"At 25 centimeters, the images will be detailed enough to classify the make of a car," the report states. "If the restrictions relax further, the plate number or owner's face could come into clear view."
