Fairly accurate accounts on Cicero (Elyeza Bazna) and on the British spy German Fritz Kolbe who mentioned Cicero’s existence to the Allies in February 1944.
Bazna, Elyesa. & Nogly, Hans. I was Cicero. Harper & Row, New York - 1962.
The real Cicero actually was Elyesa Bazna, an Albanian. In this book, he retells the story, listing his collaborators as a chambermaid and his niece. The character of the countess was a (very intelligent) Hollywood fabrication.

Moyzisch, Ludwig C. Operation Cicero. Wingate London - 1950. English translation of Der Fall Cicero.
WS’s name is not mentioned once by Moysisch, who relates he reported alternatively to Ribbentrop’s office and to Kaltenbrunner’s office. We know however that WS, Moyzisch’s boss, did arrange to personally put Kaltenbrunenr in the front line to balance Ribbentrop’s weight, and, hence, avoid an additional confrontation with the Foreign Minister. There are however very interesting accounts on WS’s opinion since Moyzisch claims, that, putting together the December 1943 Cicero documents on the Moscow and Tehran conferences, he did understand very well the plan of the allies, found out what Overlord was and why Germany could not win the war. He also reports that one of the December Cicero deliveries allowed the deciphering of one of the very important English codes. At the level these codes were used by the British, for sure it was put to good use in Berlin at least for a while.
