About this title


"Spies for Nippon" reveals the remarkable story of Japanese spy rings operating through Spanish embassies and consulates in Britain, America and Australia during the Second World War. Details of these rings have been a closely guarded secret since the end of the war, but revealing documents from the American National Archives now show how Japan manipulated missions abroad to wreak destruction on the Allies. There is no doubt from the mass of secret information now available, that the spy network (code-named TO), which was controlled from Madrid, provided the Japanese and Germans with a vast amount of top quality information. As a result many lives were lost, particularly during the terrible convoy crossings, and from shipping sunk by Japanese submarines in Australian waters. This book investigates the depth of the TO network, how it operated and who the operators were. Sources include documents which have so far never been made available to the public and many which have, until recently, been classified as top secret.
