Poland Threatened by Weimar Germany in the Light of Special Services Reconnaissance
German intelligence had convenient conditions to conduct their espionage activities in Poland. Efficient help of Polish citizens of German background favoured intelligence penetration, and thus making it difficult for Polish counterintelligence. Abwehra’s big attention was drawn to recognising Poland’s military potential, particularly mobilisation issues. Materials gained by counterintelligence prove it. Military institutions and police bodies were engaged in fighting against German espionage. Polish counterintelligence, especially in the early 1920s, functioned in very difficult conditions. There were many reasons contributing to this state: the lack of appropriate defence services organisation and inefficiencies in training. Abwehra, despite its good organisation and favourable conditions for their activities, suffered many failures in their struggles with Polish counterintelligence. In spite of numerous problems that the Polish defence service faced in the 1920s, its actions must be positively evaluated.
