Abstract:

"Michael Mueller's account of the life of Wilhelm Canaris is the first major biography of Hitler's spymaster for more than thirty years, and is an account of espionage and intrigue across the globe and within the German high command." "More than sixty years after the end of the Second World War, Canaris remains the principal mystery man of the Nazi regime. This old-fashioned naval officer who, on the outbreak of the First World War, was intelligence officer on board Dresden in the South Atlantic, was drawn remorselessly into the web of the German secret service until, in 1934, he was appointed to head the Abwehr. He had been an early convert to National Socialism which he saw as a means of restoring Germany's position in the world but disillusionment was to follow, and during the war years, in order to retain his control of the Nazi network, he was forced to balance the contradiction of his position with his beliefs." "Long thought to be politically unreliable by many in the regime, he was implicated in the plot to assassinate Hitler in July 1944 and was executed in April 1945, just days before the end of the War." "This biography sheds light on this spectral figure and the shadowy agency he led, whose power and influence was felt across every theatre of the War."--Jacket.
