Abstract "The years 1909-1918 can be regarded as formative for MI5, an era in which it developed from a small counter-espionage bureau into an established security intelligence agency. MI5's main roles during this period were counter-espionage and advising the War Office on how to deal with the police and the civilian population, particularly foreign nationals in Britain. Using hitherto neglected documents from official archives, intelligence specialist Chris Northcott examines how MI5 foiled the spies of the Kaiser during the First World War, paying particular attention to the preventive measures the organization instituted to 'frustrate' espionage and how its investigations to 'cure' espionage were conducted."--Back cover.
