A 'false flag' is the most complex and dangerous of intelligence operations: the recruitment of an agent who believes he is working for an entirely different country. Fluent in German, having lived in Switzerland throughout his youth, Zeev Avni's speciality in Mossad was to cultivate former Nazis employed as military advisers to rebuild Egypt's army. None would willingly have co-operated with him if they had suspected for one moment that he was a Jew - and a professional Israeli intelligence officer. Nor would Mossad have promoted him if it had been realised that their star performer was a long-term mole who for years had haemorrhaged secrets to the Soviets.
When Avni's triple life was eventually exposed, he was tried in secret and sentenced to fourteen years' imprisonment. Now, for the first time, he tells the story Mossad would prefer to forget. His unique story of commitment, duplicity and betrayal is the only documented case of Mossad's penetration by Soviets, and will be regarded as a classic by espionage aficionados.

Avni's unique story of commitment, duplicity and betrayal will be regarded as a classic by espionage aficionados. (FORCES NEWS)
Nigel West's introduction makes clear just how important Avni's network of German ex-Nazis spying on their Egyptian employers was. Avni tricked old enemies into spying for Mossad and spied on Mossad for the Russians. He started working for the Russians as a young man exiled from Germany to Switzerland--Russia was the best hope in the defeat of Hitler, and that made it very simple. By the time he was a commercial attache for Israel in Yugoslavia and feeding back to Mossad analyses of Yugoslav attitudes, to Kruschev's Russia useful information which might make a compromise with Tito possible, his position had become more complicated, his sense of his own bad faith ever more pervasive. Arrest was almost a release--and then Kruschev's revelation of Stalin's crimes broke his faith and his heart, made him spill every story he had to his other masters ...This is a powerful apologia for Stalinist idealism by a man who found himself deceived--it is a book that talks less about spying and more about what you do when idealism fails you; a memoir of a life rebuilt in prison. He retrained himself as a psychotherapist and his first and most successful therapy was on himself. (AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW)
