Article Review - National Archives Blog

Another pleasant surprise - a National Archives blog on the case of German spy, Josef Jakobs. The blog post was written by Dr. Richard Dunley at the National Archives and is well researched. Given that the National Archives has the voluminous declassified MI5 files on Josef as well as the court martial documents, the author has done an admirable job of distilling the story down to a single blog post. At the end of the article, the author notes that Josef's guilty verdict seems to have been a foregone conclusion, a statement with which I would agree.

Rating
5/5 - well written and accurate
