years of counterespionage service behind him, he is still in demand for delicate investigations only recently Lord Beaverbrook s London Daily Express called in Colonel Pinto to investigate the unsolved Case of the Missing Diplomats, which involved the mysterious disappearance of two British Foreign Office officialsColonel Pinto, a native of Holland, began his Counter Intelligence career in World War I, serving in Belgium, Holland, France and Italy When World War II broke out, he was immediately called upon to help screen all aliens coming into EnglandIn September at the request of the Dutch Government in Exile in London, he was transferred to the Netherlands army to reorganize its Counter Intelligence Mission attached to SHAEF, thus coming directly under General Eisenhower During the Normandy campaign, with a staff of seven Dutch officers and men, it was his duty to see to the security of the armies moving up through France and Belgium into Holland During this period he also worked with the OSS and with the US NavyAt the close of the war he did special investigation work in Hamburg, where he stayed until his retirement inHe now makes his headquarters in London I stumbled upon Oreste Pinto s work Spycatcher in an old used book shop in a quiet park in one of the former Soviet republics The edition I purchased was printed in Moscow in 1970 and at the end contained fifty pages of an annotated vocabulary in Russian, used to explain different words and phrases for the enthusiastic soviet reader Spycatcher is a short novel taken from Pinto s time serving MI5 as an

enthusiastic soviet reader Spycatcher is a short novel taken from Pinto s time serving MI5 as an interrogator of refugees arriving in London from a Europe at war with the Nazis The stories are a half dozen different cases in which Pinto found his man Pinto is credited with uncovering 8 attempted infiltrations in his over 30,000 interviews Eight might not seem like that great a result for so much work but each spy can do incalculable damage and Pinto investigated each case with verve and vigor, the energy of a bloodhound on the hunt I am not sure if these stories were real, were fiction, or were fictionalized reality Whatever they case, they certainly showed the great insight of the interrogator at sniffing out a rat.Wars are not fought by generals or Ministers of Defense They are fought by soldiers in the trenches they are fought by privates they are fought by individual cryptographers and ambulance drivers and MASH nurses There s a famous saying Amateurs talk strategy experts talk logistics Wars are won by logisticians The UK resisting the Nazis was an extraordinary story of a whole nation dedicated to the singular purpose of defeating the enemy farmers and housewives converted into RAF aircraft assembly line workers, couriers, privates and counter intelligence officers The logistics which build the world s greatest empire all dedicated to the singular task of survival Now the odd part what is it the soviets were doing with Spycatcher What was it about this little novel which brought them to select it out of all the myriad of books published in the west Why did the censors in their centrally planned bureaucracy in Moscow think that this would be a good book to help their citizens learn the English language This I don t have an answer to but it is intriguing to wonder at the process by which a communist in an airtight bureaucracy makes decisions, and the singular professionalism they took to annotating and explaining the arcane turns of phrase of Her Majesty s English.Humanity is a weird assortment a strange ensemble of actors all vying for something Pinto was trying to defeat the Nazis That juice, at least, was certainly worth the squeeze Ok..so I picked up this relatively rare piece by chance at this quaint second hand store in Dublin I hadnt heard of Oreste before..and somehow had no clue about the Spycatcher series on BBC What surprised me the most was the textbook style Introduction and prerequisites to counter intelligence which reveal a deep understanding of the art The stories are interesting in their own way, and have a human element

deep understanding of the art The stories are interesting in their own way, and have a human element perhaps added to show that even if spies are ingloriously shot or hanged, they are still human This is a hair raising and really clever account of the Second World War that isn t told much elsewhere After some direction on what is required for being catching a spy, Pinto launches into well crafted tales that might as well be fiction He outlines his suspects in worldly detail, sometimes leaving out his thought process until he makes a reveal of a gambit that shocks the suspect and the reader.
