Summary
The first complete account of the fiercely guarded secrets of London's clandestine interrogation centre, operated by the British Secret Service from 1940 to 1948. Behind the locked doors of three mansions in London's exclusive Kensington Palace Gardens neighbourhood, the British Secret Service established a highly secret prison in 1940: the London Cage. Here recalcitrant German prisoners of war were subjected to 'special intelligence treatment'. The stakes were high: the war's outcome could hinge on obtaining information German prisoners were determined to withhold. After the war, high-ranking Nazi war criminals were housed in the Cage, revamped as an important centre for investigating German war crimes. This book reveals the full details of operations at the London Cage and subsequent efforts to hide them
