The intriguing tale of Dutch-born Margaretha MacLeod, better known as Mata Hari, exotic dancer, courtesan, fantasist, and spy. Drawing on M15’s archives on the 100th anniversary of her execution, historian Mary W Craig reveals how she was recruited as a spy by both the Germans and the French during World War I, and almost the Russians, too. It was a deadly game, and she became the prize catch.
