BOOK LAUNCH 9 August 2024

Join Andrew Long and Ian Sanders from the Cold War Conversations podcast at the National Army Museum in Chelsea, London as they discuss Andrew's new book, BRIXMIS and the Secret Cold War, Intelligence Collection Operations Behind Enemy Lines in East Germany

BRIXMIS and the Secret Cold War  tells how an obscure 1946 agreement allowed highly trained military observers from the British Army and Royal Air Force to gather intelligence inside communist East Germany throughout the Cold War.


The story describes this unique British military unit: their training; organisation; specialist equipment; tactics; and their daring covert intelligence collection missions while trying to evade the Stasi secret police and Soviet forces.


Richly illustrated, the book is based on new research, working closely with the BRIXMIS Association, interviewing many former members of the Mission, and using recently collected or declassified archival material.

Book your free place to join Andrew, Ian, and former members of BRIXMIS at the National Army Museum now, or register for the live-stream at 1200 hours BST on 9 August, 2024.
