The Norwegian Intelligence Service, 1945–1970
A comprehensive history of the post-war years
First edition. Card covers. 23 × 15.5cm. xvii + 315pp
After many imaginative and often speculative books about the Norwegian intelligence service, this book represents an authentic and thoroughly documented history. The author presents detailed descriptions of the build-up of a network of Norwegian signals intelligence stations in the north; border crossings by clandestine agents; the reporting of Norwegian merchant mariners from ports behind the Iron Curtain; the intimate co-operation between the NIS and the secret services of the United States and other countries; as well as of the establishment of a 'Stay Behind' network.
