* OlderThanRadio: ''Konrad Wallenrod'' by Adam Mickiewicz is a classic of Polish Romanticism, in which he postulated using deceit (as opposed to direct action) against the occupiers. The plot involves a Lithuanian who rises in ranks of TheTeutonicKnights, and after many years leads their army to a total defeat.

* Alfred Redl was the most devastating spy [[TheSoundOfMartialMusic Austria-Hungary]] ever had, giving TsaristRussia virtually every scrap of data he could get his hands on to the point where by the time he was found out and forced to commit suicide, over a year of preparation did not even start to repair the damage by the time UsefulNotes/WorldWarI started. Redl's role? Director of Austro-Hungarian intelligence!

* [[http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_P._Laurel José P. Laurel]], the 3rd President of the Philippines, was, unlike the others on this list, a ReverseMole (for the exiled government of the Commonwealth of the Philippines), with a good measure of PromotedToScapegoat thrown in. A ReverseMole who was supposed to be at the top, at that.

* As told in ''Literature/HorribleHistories'', the story of Fernando Buschman, a Brazilian-German violinist who was executed during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI in the Tower of London for spying. He, as well as a group of spies, were all sent to their deaths by their spymaster, a British [[TheMole mole]] serving in Germany's intelligence wing.

The Germans' entire "infiltration" method was a signal for the British Intelligence to quickly identify them and get them captured.

* Creator/DavidWeber is ''very'' fond of this trope. The third book in Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes has it. The taking over of Literature/{{Safehold}} by the staff of the colony ships. ''Wind Riders Oath'' in the [[Literature/TheWarGods Bahzell]] series has ''several'' of them. Much of the backstory and the conclusion of ''Literature/PrinceRoger''. The ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' books managed to avoid them for quite some time, but then the Mesans, with an entire multi-generational network of moles, appeared.

* An odd variant occurs in JackLondon's ''The Assassination Bureau, Ltd.'' when Winter Hall, having paid the Bureau to kill its own leader, is placed in charge of handling the Bureau's correspondence and finances -- the things the leader would normally do -- while said leader is on the run from his team. The members of the Bureau ''know'' Hall is out to destroy them, because he ''told'' them ... but they all have [[HonorBeforeReason an overpowering sense of ethics, and so they respect his honesty]] and consider him a friend. And he considers ''them'' friends, and now wants to find a way to destroy the organization without harming the members.
