Picture of the Month

August 2017

During WW1, all nations employed spies. The names of some are remembered: Fraulein Doktor , Sidney Reilly, the Ace of Spies, Carl Hans Lody and, of course, Mata Hari. Executed by the French in October 1917, it is her story which features this month. 

To read more about Mata Hari, go to our Spy Stories page, scroll down and read on.

Welcome to SPYSTORY

With an unique collection of stories, photos, maps and references, SPYSTORY gathers together a wealth of hard to find information. Accounts of spies and spymasters reveal some remarkable people and events. 

The in-depth account of the life and death of Cecil Aylmer Cameron is at the heart of SPYSTORY and can be found by clicking on  An Unlikely Spy. 

I'm hoping that the book on which the website is based will be published in 2017.   

There are many other items of interest, whether you are just browsing or a student of intelligence history. 

As well as being online, many features and stories can be downloaded to be read later. There will be regular updates, so please bookmark this page.

Finally, do let us have any suggestions or comments, and any espionage related stories that we might feature here. 

Enjoy your visit!

The site is being constantly updated. The date of the most recent update will be shown here.
