When Owens returned to London, British Intelligence interrogated him at length. Through it all, Owens proclaimed his loyalty, and MI5 allowed him limited duties as a double agent. On August 18, 1939, however, SNOW’s wife and son notified Scotland Yard that Arthur was a Nazi spy. Owens, who appeared to be playing both sides for money, continued to proclaim his innocence.

Only Spain and Portugal, with their proximity to France and strategic islands and ports, were of critical importance. Spain was only nominally neutral, however. Germany had supported Franco’s fascist regime in the Spanish Civil War, augmenting his rise to power, and Madrid leaned heavily to Axis affiliation. Portugal was a different matter. The country shared the oldest existing alliance treaty—signed in 1373—with England. British soldiers had helped Portugal gain independence in the twelfth century, and the country had maintained its empire largely due to the British Navy.
