This chapter details the further changes in H. L. A. Hart's life following the outbreak of the Second World War. In 1940 Herbert began working for MI5. He was assigned to B division, which was the core of MI5. It was concerned with counter-espionage, running surveillance, and investigation operations which aimed to prevent espionage and identify spies within the UK. Most important of all, B Division developed and operated the highly successful ‘Double Cross’ system through which strategically damaging misinformation was fed back to Germany by double agents.
