BRIXMIS (The British Commander-in-Chiefa s Mission to the Group Soviet Forces of Occupation in Germany) is one of the most little-known elite spying units of the British Army. They were dropped in behind a enemy linesa ten months after the Second World War had ended and remained operating their intelligence-gathering missions until October 1990 and then covertly until 1993, long after the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989.

During this period Berlin was a hotbed of spying between East and West. BRIXMIS was established as a legitimate channel of communication between the Red Army and the British Army on the Rhine, they were trusted by the Russians. Its a clean statusa made BRIXMIS a key part of the Cold War. However, their missions were concealed by their diplomatic and liaison role to ‘steal’ advanced and they acted behind the shadows to steal advanced Soviet equipment and penetrate top-secret training areas.

The book has been updated, with the passage of time, to reflect more acutely upon BRIXMIS, the broader intelligence function today, and whathas come to pass for contemporary strategic decison-making. This unique history of this most elite of units offers a new understanding of the British role in the Cold War. The Rules of Touring
