Lots of detail about post-war intellegence operations in (West) Germany in the 20 years post-World War II. As the title suggests it's about the head of this, who rose alongside Canaris during World War II, and then with the backing of Allen Dulles and the Americans to lead an organisation with an anti-communist focus. Surprised to learn that so many ex-nazis and SS personnel remained part of the intellegence regime.
Quite dry in places; the most interesting parts are in the second half of the book.
The book is now quite old, written before Gehlen died. I imagine that there is now much more information available. ( )
