Typically each Ast would be commanded by a senior army or naval officer and would be answerable to Abwehr HQ. in Berlin. Operations carried out by each Ast would be in tandem with the overall strategic plan formulated by Admiral Canaris. Canaris in turn would receive instructions on what intelligence gathering should take priority from the OKW or, increasingly after 1941, Hitler directly. In practice, each Ast was given considerable latitude in mission planning and execution—a facet of the organisation which ultimately damaged its intelligence gathering capability.
'East German Foreign Intelligence solidly documents what a dedicated and determined intelligence service, free of the constraints of democratic society, can accomplish. As a work of research and analysis, the book is a benchmark for historians and intelligence professionals.' - Hayden Peake, Studies in Intelligence 'The book is fascinating and informative, and it does help us to separate the reality of the HVA from the melodramatic LeCarre-tinged myth. Indeed, it shows that this reality may even make a better story.' - German Studies Review 'As a work of research and analysis, the book is a benchmark for historians and intelligence professionals.' - Studies in Intelligence -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
