  • Kissnger even discussed with them the possibility of a coup to overthrow the government of Chancellor Willy Brandt
  • The Little Service which came into being in 1969 and ran for a decade
  • Was lavishly funded and with more success than state intelligence agencies which were riddled with East German moles
A German academic has unearthed evidence showing former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once discussed a coup with disgruntled Nazis to overthrow the West German government in the 1970s.
Kissinger and Richard Nixon were aggrieved at the left-leaning government of the day’s burgeoning friendship with the hardline East German government.
Kissinger became the contact man for a secret spy network made up of old Nazis and elite aristocrats aimed at torpedoing the plans formulated by Chancellor Willy Brandt.
Secret: Henry Kissinger in the 1970s in his White House office in Washington. He gave advice to a secret network made up of old Nazis and elite aristocrats
By the end of 1970, Kissinger was offering the spies advice on how to deal with Brandt’s Social Democratic government.
The group he became embroiled with was called ‘The Little Service’ and was formed by the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), which was allied with Bavaria’s Christian Social Union.
