Allied Spies inside higher German commands

Post by sons of anzac » 03 Mar 2019 15:39

I have seen many references over time claiming western allied or Soviet spies inside the higher echelons of the OKW / OKH / Nazi political apparatus. Apart from Admiral Canaris and General Oster in the Ahwehr I can't recall any definite names placed against the rumours ,/ references backed up by facts in the time since the war. With the passing of time and the gradual demise of limits on information due to secrecy provisions can anyone name some definite spies / leakers and who they were providing information to?
