Summary
2.13a.m, 16th December 1942: a Nazi parachutist lands in Cambridgeshire. His mission: to sabotage the British war effort. His German masters call him Fritz. The British police know him as the crook Eddie Chapman. Within weeks, Chapman is in the hands of MI5 operating as Agent Zigzag. So opens the most sensational chapter in the history of British espionage. Unpredictable, dashing and louche, Chapman proved to be a handful for both his German and British spymasters. Weaving together diaries, letters and memories, along with fascinating top-secret MI5 files, Ben Macintyre creates an exhilarating account of the many lives of Eddie Chapman
Summary
Eddie Chapman was a charming criminal, a con man, and a philanderer. He was also one of the most remarkable double agents Britain has ever produced. In 1941, after training as a German spy in occupied France, Chapman was parachuted into Britain with orders to blow up an airplane factory. Instead, he contacted MI5, the British Secret Service. For the next four years, he worked as a double agent, a British spy at the heart of the German Secret Service. Crisscrossing Europe under different names, weaving plans, spreading disinformation, and miraculously keeping his stories straight under intense interrogation, he even managed to gain some profit and seduce beautiful women along the way. MI5 has now declassified all of Chapman's files, allowing the full story to be told, a unique glimpse into the psychology of espionage, with its thin and shifting line between fidelity and betrayal.--From publisher description
