Description

How Hitler's spy chief sabotaged the German war effort.

Wilhelm Canaris was appointed by Hitler to head the Abwehr (the German secret service) 18 months after the Nazis came to power. But Canaris turned against the Fuhrer and the Nazi regime, believing that Hitler would start a war Germany could not win. In 1938 he was involved in an attempted coup, undermined by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. In 1940 he sabotaged the German plan to invade England and fed General Franco vital information that helped him keep Spain out of the war.

For years he played a dangerous double game, desperately trying to keep one step ahead of the Gestapo. The SS chief, Heinrich Himmler, became suspicious of the Abwehr and by 1944, when Abwehr personnel were involved in the attempted assassination of Hitler, he had the evidence to arrest Canaris himself. Canaris was executed a few weeks before the end of the war.

A Brilliant Man Doing Good While Surrounded By Evil

I first heard about Wilhelm Canaris from a friend in college. He described him a the equivalent of a puppeteer or someone who plays 3-D chess. What impressed me about this history was Canaris’ high moral character, great mind and willingness to do the right thing even when it could cause him to be tortured and/or lose his life.

well researched but dry

This is a great book, the author has put a lot of work into it, but it's dry. i found it hard to get into it.

Canaris, a spy, but for who?

A must read for anyone even remotely interested in espionage. Couldn't stop listening. Looking forward to getting a hard copy to add to my library.

not much going on, more of a biography

Very little action or interesting content. Just drones on about the guys whole life story.
