Hitler’s South African Spies presents an unrivalled account of German intelligence networks in wartime South Africa.

The story of the intelligence war in South Africa during the Second World War is one of suspense, drama and dogged persistence. In 1939, when the Union of South Africa entered the war on Britain’s side, the German government secretly contacted the political opposition, and the leadership of the anti-war movement, the Ossewabrandwag. The Nazis’ aim was to spread sedition, undermine the Allied war effort and – given the strategic importance of the Cape of Good Hope sea route – gain naval intelligence. Soon U-boat packs were sent to operate in South African waters to deadly effect. With the Ossewabrandwag’s help, a network of German spies was established to gather and relay back to the Reich important political and military intelligence. Agents would send coded messages to Axis diplomats in neighbouring Mozambique. Meanwhile, police detectives and MI5 hunted in vain for illegal wireless transmitters.
