For the most part German Spies were very ineffectual. Most

German Spies, who tried to infiltrate Britain, were caught

immediately and turned(They stood out because all the communities

were close knit and any stranger was immediately reported). German

Spies did operate brazenly in Mexico, as in ww1, but little has

been published on this matter. The Germans were trying to pump

money into Mexico, because they hoped the Mexican Govt. would

invade the U.S. On the Russian Front, Terrible without a doubt. The

Russians always seemed to be a step ahead of the Axis before they

could mount any major offensive.
