With the ending of the Battle of Britain and the abandonment of invasion plans (correctly reported by both SIS and the Bletchley Park ULTRA project), the spy scare eased, and the internment policy was gradually reversed.
The system was extraordinarily successful; in fact, every important German agent in Britain during the war was in fact a double agent controlled by MI5.
The system played a major part in the massive campaign of deception which preceded the D-Day landings, designed to give the Germans a false impression of the location and timings of the landings.

Consequently, German forces in Norway increased from nine to 12 divisions by mid-May. As with D-Day itself, the reasons for this cannot be easily broken down and credited, but the double agents certainly contributed to the overall German strategic myopia.

As head of MI5's espionage operations during World War Two, Guy Liddell was credited with devastating intelligence coups that struck at the heart of the German war effort and led one historian to describe him as 'the man who put intelligence into spying'.
Covering the period from August 1939 to June 1945, the diaries reveal how double agents smuggled microfilm and explosives out of occupied Europe; deep cover British spies operated inside German embassies; and how prostitutes in Britain were uncovered as German agents.
Central to Liddell's career was the double-cross system, run during the war by a shadowy Whitehall organisation called the Twenty Committee (the Roman numeral for 20 is the double cross 'XX').
