Marlborough College Summer School: Spying in Cold War East Germany, 15 Jan 2014 [cached]
TUTOR: Peter Williams (CMG OBE)
For over four decades Berlin, surrounded by East Germany, was the focus of Cold War tension and the scene of an unending struggle between NATO and Warsaw Pact countries to discover each other's secrets.
This course will cover Cold War espionage highlights and how the British, French and American garrisons maintained West Berliners' liberty. It will look in depth at how the Allied Military Liaison Missions conducted a highly effective military intelligence campaign against the Soviet and East German armed forces in the German Democratic Republic.
Peter Williams spent six years in Berlin as an intelligence officer, serving in BRIXMIS, the British liaison organisation that operated with - and against - its Soviet counterparts in East Germany.
'BRIXMIS in the 1980s: The Cold War's Great Game', by Peter Williams; available on the Parallel History Project website
After studying History at Cambridge University, Peter Williams spent over 30 years in the Coldstream Guards and enjoyed an unusually varied career.
During the Cold War he specialised in intelligence, serving first in Berlin from 1973 to 1975 as a Regimental Intelligence Officer. He then studied Russian and German before spending more than four years in the 1980s in Berlin and East Germany as an officer in the British Commanders'-in-Chief Mission to the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany (known as BRIXMIS), in effect working as a military spy. In 1984 he was awarded an MBE for his success as an intelligence collector and analyst.
Ten years later he was given an OBE for commanding his battalion on peacekeeping operations in Bosnia during the civil war. He went on to complete three 6-month tours in the former Yugoslavia with the United Nations and NATO.
His final posting was from 2002 to 2005 in Moscow, where he started up and led NATO's Military Liaison Mission to the Russian Federation, working on military cooperation projects, including defence reform and peacekeeping issues, with the Russian armed forces. On leaving Moscow he was made a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George. e retired from the Army in December 2005.
He now enjoys giving talks on cruise ships, to military academies, schools and summer schools and to charity audiences about the Cold War and other current and historical issues; these include talks under the Government-sponsored pro bono'Speakers for Schools' scheme. He also helps to train British military diplomats.
He is the Chairman of the BRIXMIS Association and was until 2013 the editor of The Guards Magazine , the in-house journal of the British Army's Household Division (Household Cavalry and Foot Guards).

According to a Rosbalt correspondent, the remark was made by NATO's Moscow representative, Peter Williams, during a roundtable discussion Thursday entitled 'Russia-NATO.' According to Williams, NATO intends to demonstrate the success of such cooperation in the near future.
In particular, said Williams, a familiarization visit to St. Petersburg by military personnel from NATO countries is planned for this year.And next year, NATO personnel will arrive to train their Russian colleagues. 'This will permit Russian and NATO soldiers to cooperate in the future and achieve specific goals,' Williams said.
