About the Author

Karina Urbach was a Kurt-Hahn-Scholar at the University of Cambridge, where she took her MPhil and PhD. For her German Habilitation she was awarded the Bavarian Ministry of Culture prize. She has published on 19th and 20th century European history and recently co-edited a book on Intelligence with Stanford University Press (2013). The TLS praised her 'carefully researched and gracefully written' monograph on Bismarck's policy towards Britain, and Christopher Clark called her biography of Queen Victoria 'a gripping read'. She is currently at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London, and has worked as historical advisor on many BBC and German TV documentaries.


`A fascinating and painstaking reconstruction of the real history of the go-between, so long shrouded in rumour and speculation. This really is a priviliged journey behind the scenes of international diplomacy in the company of a cast of larger-than-life characters brought vividly to life.' Richard Overy, editor of The Oxford Illustrated History of World War II `Karina Urbach's scintillating book illuminates a vital and heretofore neglected feature of twentieth-century diplomacy - the role of private intermediaries between governments. Through imaginative research in dozens of archives scattered across the European Continent, Urbach brings to life the hidden world of multilingual aristocrats in the era of the two world wars... As [she] demonstrates, such high-born intermediaries, operating under the radar, helped solidify the Austro-German alliance before 1914 and enabled Hitler to influence the British upper classes in the 1930s. Urbach sketches personalities so vividly and writes so well that, in addition to its scholarly importance, this work reads like a mystery novel.' Stephen A. Schuker, University of Virginia `Just when one thinks every possible aspect of this war has been covered, along comes a surprise. Such is Karina Urbach's highly original new book, Go-Betweens for Hitler an unsurpassable work on this intriguing subject.' The Daily Telegraph
