Britain had no spies inside Nazi Germany. The Gestapo broke all cover stories and tortured the spies to death...The British secret service gave "Ray" a phenomenal cover story. The Gestapo couldn't break it - but each day, Ray woke up, knowing she could die from torture that evening...Goebbels tried to seduce her. Heydrich took her into his inner circle. Fighting in Poland made her the darling of Sepp Dietrich. She rode with Guderian in his race to the Channel, to trap the British Army at Dunkirk. Hitler invited her to his Eagle's Nest, and from the stenographer, she got a copy of every word he said on her visit...On the beach at Castelldefels, near Barcelona, in 1999, we made friends with an Italian lady - patrician face, some 40 years, spoke Italian, Spanish, English and German. I told her I was an ex-United Press correspondent and was now writing books - she told me she had an incredible story of her English aunt. Her aunt had been a spy inside Nazi Germany, who talked with Hitler himself. In the attic of a family house in Wiltshire, they found diaries; Laura had brought them to Castelldefels to read. Finally, Laura photocopied them for me. "You can put each entry as full sentences, and see what you think." I asked for names. No names. "I'll give you a post-restante number in Torino, with a nom-de-plume. My husband is German, and we do a huge amount of business in Germany. If the Germans ever found out...you keep the copyright, and put your name on it." She warned London to protect the Ardennes. They didn't listen. So - Dunkirk.
