2 The Origins of British Counter-Espionage Invasion scares In 1870, the imperial French government of Napoleon III declared war on Prussia and her allies, but the Germans quickly annihilated the French army, invaded France, captured the emperor himself, and eventually conquered Paris. 2 Chesney’s tale describes a successful German invasion of England, culminating in the rout and defeat of the British army at Dorking. 3 His message was straightforward. A false sense of security and lack of preparedness had caused British failure.

26 The archives contain little information on the size of German naval intelligence during the war. 27 Presumably, the naval intelligence organization was slightly smaller, given the greater importance of the army over the navy. Throughout its existence, ‘N’ remained firmly integrated into the organization of the Admiralstab. Apart from the operatives, naval intelligence personnel were recruited exclusively from branches of the Imperial Navy, and usually returned to other naval duties after completing a stint of a few years with ‘N’.
