Reiben, I give up

Questions of this kind is very difficult to answer -it depends on what source did you use.
How can you be sure that your source is the correct one?

That military attache who reported the invasion date to Moscow could have several agents...
I am afraid he didn't tell you the agent's name during the private meeting in Geneva, so how many interpetators have distorted the truth before you have read it?

I already mentioned him, but you never replied, so here we go again. Are you referring to Rudolph Roessler?
Rudolf Roessler, a German émigré and Russian spy who operated a book store in Lucerne, Switzerland. Roessler and his associates not only transmitted to Stalin the entire German battle plan but also spelled out the number of panzer groups that would be involved and the names of the officers from the most senior ones down to corps commanders.
