Watchers on the invisible front
Military counterintelligence at the dawn of the ‘Dangerous Decade’
In part three of this special section on NATO and counterintelligence, Daniel G. Pronk discusses the major threats in regard to espionage to the Netherlands during the 1980s, otherwise known as the ‘Dangerous Decade’. The largest threat came from Soviet intelligence organizations, most famously the KGB. The targets at the time were Science and Technology and their applicability for military purposes, NATO headquarters and installations on Dutch territory, and the Netherlands armed forces.
