Leo Marks, MBE, was the man that wrote probably the best book on code-breaking in World War Two, Between Silk and Cyanide. He is also the one behind the most romantic poem of the era, The Life I Have, given to SOE agent Violette Szabo as a code. She would die in a German Concentration Camp in 1945 – her story is in Code Name GSSP-40 and a picture of her and other heroic female agents on my website. But the poem was not written for Szabo as such but for Marks’s deceased fiancée, Ruth, who died in an air crash in Canada, 1943. Such is war, not a game as the Washington NeoCon war mongrels Pompous Pompeo and John Bolton, the dual Israeli/American think. It is deadly serious and a very sad affair for those actually exposed to danger. Of course, those not exposed are also the “bravest of the brave.” You have to wonder how a self-admitted Vietnam dodger, Bolton, came to have so much influence but anyway.
Today I was listening to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, the former Assistant US Secretary of State under Mr. Reagan. A man worth listening to and one feared by the mongrels because he says things as it is. He made an interesting comment. It comes down to the anomaly that all the mainstream media reports are the same. In fact, they are also the same in what they leave out and report not! A quick glance at the websites will show you the truth, all the same, why?
That set off all sorts of alarms in my head because we have a historical warning leading back to Occupied Netherlands and the greatest fiasco that befell British Intelligence at the time. Their outright incompetence cost dozens of lives. It is so important that I mention it in several books, Code Name Phoenix, GMJ 3, being the first. I explained that one of the greatest intelligence disgraces of the Second World War was when SOE (Special Operations Executive), the British “wartime only” saboteurs formed by Mr. Churchill, totally lost the plot with operations in the Netherlands. Their entire network was working under German control despite two captured agents escaping from the concentration camps to warn SOE.
There were many hidden warnings in the radio messages which were not picked up until a 23-year-old code breaker called Leo Marks became suspicious. He was only at SOE because he was not considered good enough for the better-known code breakers of Bletchley Park that dealt with the Enigma codes and others (see Code Name Odette on ciphers and codes and how little of the Enigma codes were really used). After his intervention and warnings, SOE woke up, very gradually and decreased support. Ironically, the two escapists were locked up after reaching England as they were suspected to be German double agents. They dared to accuse English officers of incompetence and treachery. Fortunately, at some stage in the future, they were released and joined the Dutch Army in exile. Their disgust with the UK lot cannot be adequately described for it was utterly disgusting.
As it turned out, the Germans, under command of Major (some say Lieutenant Colonel) Hermann Giskes of the Abwehr (German Military Intelligence), played what they called “Englandspiel” or “England Games.” They made fools of the Pommies. By April 1943 Giskes controlled 18 separate radio channels back to London. This went on for another 15 months. They received tons of explosives, weapons and other equipment, all meant for a non-existing underground. Some say, and I have no idea if this is true, that the explosives used with the 20 July 1944 bomb plot to assassinate Hitler came from these weapons drops. What I do know is that if all the explosives issued to Count von Stauffenberg were used instead of the half he did use - the German Chancellor would not have survived. It would have made no difference though. Without unconditional surrender, the war would have gone on though the ill-advised Battle of the Bulge would not have taken place and the Soviets perhaps stopped at their own borders. I would say that Nazi Germany lost that war before it even started; they were in no way prepared for war. If you look at the logistics involved it tells a sad story of foolish behavior from the Chancellor. Attacking The Soviet Union was no mistake though, he had to since they were about to attack him. This, of course, is not taught in a school history lessons but you would do well to read the GRU defector, Suvorov’s books in this regard. Look at how the Soviet Army was constructed and the intentions become very clear.
Major Giskes' Englandspiel led to one of the most amusing radio messages of the war, this was after the networks were suspected and the drops decreased: “Messrs, Blunt, Bingham and Successors, Ltd. London. This is the last time you are trying to make business in the Netherlands without our assistance. We think this rather unfair in view of our long and successful co-operation as your sole agents. But never mind, when you come to pay a visit to the Continent you may be assured that you will be received with the same care and result as all those you sent before. So long!” The radio message was sent on 1 April 1944 by Giskes in the clear, meaning open channels. I have no doubt the 1 April date was also an “up yours” or meant to be. He later worked for the CIA, not the Brits, after being investigated by them, wrongly and idiotically, for war crimes because the captured agents were executed in German concentration camps. In fact, the executions were against his wishes but that is the risk you take when working as a spy during wartime and other times. It is not against the rules of war to execute spies.
Blunt, Bingham and Succs were SOE section chiefs controlling the Dutch Desk and making a thoroughly bad job of it too. (The “Blunt” part had nothing to do with the infamous KGB spy, Art Professor Anthony Blunt. He was part of the Cambridge Four Ring and at that time in MI5 or counterespionage. In 1945 he recovered highly incriminating evidence against the British Royal Family’s connection to Adolf Hitler.) The Giskes message, he made sure it reached them by sending it from ten different locations, caused uproar and though amusing, more than fifty brave SOE agents died. They jumped straight into a trap and all because one wanker in headquarters did not note the first warning message. But how did Marks know? What made him so suspicious? The messages being received, send under great stress from Occupied Europe were perfect. “Despite harrowing circumstances, "not a single Dutch agent has been so overwrought that he's made a mistake in his coding…” That was the oddity that he spotted. He linked the dots, correctly. So tell me, why are all the mainstream liars reporting the same lines? Who controls them?
