This chapter discusses that the British and Americans increased the amount of intelligence they acquired on the Soviet Union by exchanging it. It adds that a collaboration with Germany offered more opportunities than anywhere else and collaboration would yield very large volumes of intelligence. It reveals that another key collaborator was West German business wherein many contacts were recruited among its professional people. It explains that the principal motive for collaboration was hostility to communism and the USSR. It discusses that the contacts provided a great deal of information on research and development. It investigates the great abilities of the Occupiers of Germany to intercept all circulating letters, and telephone calls and other telecommunications made within their Zones, and all letters and telecommunications arriving in their Zones from other Zones and from the outside world.

Keywords:   information exchange, collaboration, Germany, USSR, West German business, Occupiers of Germany, interception
