This paper aims to show the inner workings of one of the most prolific foreign espionage agencies of the Cold War. From 1953 to 1990, the German Democratic Republic sat on the front lines of modern espionage. East Germany separated the Soviet Union from the West. The man in charge of maintaining order was Markus Wolf. His most impactful agent was Günter Guillaume who was in the office of West German Chancellor Willy Brandt. These men played an integral part in the politics between East and West that strained relations between the two sides of Germany. They left a lasting impression on the Cold War that would play a part in the collapse of the German Democratic Republic.
