By Steve Gibson
BRIXMIS (British Commander-in-Chief's Mission to the Group Soviet Forces of Occupation in Germany) is one of the most covert elite units of the British Army. They were dropped in behind 'enemy lines' ten months after the Second World War had ended and continued with their intelligence-gathering missions until the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989.
I'd only recently heard of Brixmis so when I saw this I was keen to pick it up. This is a well written and thoughtful account of an incredible British spy program, which I gather is little-known. It's got some great insights into life in the DDR and also the relationship between the two sides. Definitely worth getting if you're interested in the Cold War, spying or seeing a different angle of the period.
Happy to be able to buy from the Tank Museum, they've got a great selection of books, delivery was very prompt and well packaged too - thanks!
