Snow: The Double Life Of A World War II Spy


Martin Evans at the British newspaper the Telegraph writes about Arthur Owens, code name Agent Snow, who, according a new book written by Nigel West and Madoc Roberts, was MI5's first double agent in World War II.

Mr West said Agent Snow’s contribution both to the war effort and to the development of espionage cannot be over stated.

He said: “Arthur Owens was the foundation of the double cross system which proved so vital in helping the Allies in so many areas. His contribution has never fully been appreciated, but it is hard to overstate how important his role was.”
