** One notable agent was Eddie Chapman, a fraud, thief, safecracker, and all-around cad. He was doing a stint in one of the Channel islands during Nazi takeover of that area, before being transferred to Paris, and was able to negotiate his way into being recruited by the ''UsefulNotes/{{Abwehr}}'' as a Nazi agent. When they deployed him into Britain, Chapman immediately volunteered himself to MI5 to act as a double agent. It worked out beautifully, that is until it came close to the closing of the European front. Chapman started becoming indiscreet and started rekindling connections with criminal elements, so MI5 fired him and he went back to civilian life.
