Summary
During the night of 24 to 25 May 1913, Colonel Alfred Redl, the the Austro-Hungarian General Staff's directorate of military intelligence, and confidante of the heir to the throne. ends his life. His suicide note reads: 'Levity and passion have destroyed me'. What no one had known: for almost a decade he had betrayed significant and damaging secrets to the Italians, the French and the Russians. But what had been his motives? Redl owed everything to the army he deceived. Was he trapped into treason by blackmail? There were no definite answers for almost 100 years. The true story has only recently been reconstructed, after Austrian historians rediscovered long-lost records. A tragic story emerges - of a man who was forced to hide his homosexuality and used his wealth to please his young lover. The scandal was huge, and it has never completely died down
