    schema:reviewBody ""The East German Stasi was a highly professional and dangerously conspiratorial organisation, the self-styled 'sword and shield' of a vicious Communist regime. In its relentless intelligence war on what its officers called 'the invisible front', Britain was a principal target. This is the story of that war - a story the Stasi tried to ensure would never be told. When Communism collapsed in 1989/90, they embarked on an orgy of destruction, shredding millions of files. Some, however, were overlooked, and others recently reconstructed - and they form the basis of this groundbreaking book. This is the first time the files have yielded their secrets on Britain, and, thanks to recent changes in German law, it will be the last."--BOOK JACKET." ;
