Introduction The 'Summary of the Garbo Case 1941—1945' is a remarkable
document. It is the chronicle of the operational activities of Juan Pujol,
codenamed GARBO, who has been described as the greatest double agent of
the Second World War. However, this is no simple narrative by a detached
historian or journalist, but rather the official report of Pujol's MI5 case officer,
Tomas Harris, a man who directed, channelled, encouraged and sustained the
agent's remarkable talents.

Juan Pujol, the celebrated Spanish double agent codenamed 'Garbo' by the
British, had volunteered to provide his German spymasters with accurate
information about where the bombs were landing: 'I might take on the work of
making daily observations . . . and let you have by radio an exact report on
objectives hit so that you will be able to correct any possible errors of fire.' Garbo
spiced up his reports with characteristic eruptions of Nazi fervour: 'I am certain
you will be able to terrify ...

The Twenty Committee and Section B1A of MI5 had turned the playing of double
agents into an art form, but as the Double Cross System developed and
expanded, more and more of the agents reporting back to Germany were purely
fictional: Agent A (real) would notionally employ Agent B (unreal), who would in
turn recruit other agents, C to Z (all equally imaginary). Juan Pujol García, Agent '
Garbo', the most famous double agent of them all, was eventually equipped with
no fewer ...

sufficient sophistication, the double agents could be used to deceive the
Germans about Allied capabilities and intentions. Possibly the most important
double agent, who would play a key role in deceiving the Germans about Allied
intentions in June 1944, was Juan Pujol, code-named GARBO. GARBO arrived in
Britain in April 1942, having worked as a free-lance double agent in Lisbon for
some time, after having failed to interest SIS in his services. He had volunteered
his services to ...

London, June 1944 Juan Pujol, agent Garbo, still had to get the right map on
which to plot where the Maikäfer were falling. It was proving a problem. Garbo
radioed his control and bought the Baedeker guide to London from a second-
hand bookshop. But Control insisted on the Pharus version. Garbo's research
took him to the British Museum Library, where he found 'the only copy in
existence. I learn that the German map was edited in 1907 and therefore is very
antique indeed.

In Glasgow, Pedro – Garbo's Agent 3 – had found something that would interest
the Abwehr. During the spring of the previous year he had become friendly with
an NCO in the RAF, a man of rather weak character who was often short of
money. In conversation with Pedro one day, the NCO happened to show the
Venezuelan a copy of an RAF aircraft recognition handbook. The airman did not
know that Pedro was a Nazi spy, and allowed him to flick through the looseleaf
booklet with its ...

Kuhlenthal ended his performance with a lumbering joke, pointing out that
although his agent 'made cakes which were unpleasant in taste, their contents
were excellent'. Canaris was impressed. Kuhlenthal's reputation went up another
notch. (The cake, in fact, had been baked by Garbo's wife, sent to Lisbon by
diplomatic bag, and dropped off by an MI6 agent. The RAF pamphlet was out of
date, and British intelligence knew the Abwehr had it already.) The high point of
Garbo's career ...
