An insight into the operations and successes of German counter-espionage in France during World War H. Fuller, a wartime censor in England, tells the story-of Captain John Starr, French Section, Special Operations Executive, who was betrayed to German counterespionage. During his interrogations Starr learned that through captured British radios and codes German counterintelligence personnel were operating part of the resistance and underground movements themselves.
