British counter-intelligence in Iran in WWII
Dr Adrian O’Sullivan, an Intelligence Historian, has spent six years investigating the secret world of wartime Persia (Iran) in the German, British, and American archives, a field hitherto neglected by intelligence historians. Using previously classified sources, he examines the highly effective methods employed by British security intelligence to safeguard the lines of communication, the Lend-Lease supply route from the Gulf to the Caspian, and the vital oilfields, pipelines, and refineries of Khuzestan from Nazi attack and indigenous sabotage. Dr O’Sullivan’s compelling study of operational narratives and key clandestine personalities also analyses Anglo-American and Anglo-Soviet intelligence relations as the three Allies moved inexorably towards post-war realignment and the Cold War.
