  German Espionage and Sabotage Against the U.S. in World War II
This was accomplished by Gen. Friedrich Wolf, the Military Attache, and Johannes Siegfried Becker, an S.D. officer sent clandestinely to Argentina from Germany in January 1943.
This was under the leadership of Heinz Lange, a veteran of German espionage in Brazil and Paraguay, assisted by Eugenio Ellinger, whom Becker sent to Chile in April 1943.
Throughout the war the Germans sought military, political and economic information of any and all types, and the broad assignments given agents may well be one reason for the failure to obtain specific data of high quality.

 Parallel History Project on NATO and the Warsaw Pact   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
At the same time, the Stasi espionage could document NATO's high respect for the Warsaw Pact's capabilities, regardless of the Western awareness of the substantial problems of individual Warsaw Pact armies and the deficiencies of their equipment.
Such perceptions of military threats did not subside in the Soviet Union before the mid-1980s, leading to a fundamental change of Warsaw Pact military doctrine in 1987.
Because of the inaccessibility of Soviet military records, it is impossible to estimate to what extent the change may have been influenced by the intelligence on NATO received from the GDR agents during those years.
