Walther Schellenberg was a German SS-Brigadeführer who rose through the ranks of the SS to become the head of foreign intelligence following the abolition of the Abwehr in 1944. In 1940 he was charged with compiling the Informationsheft G.B., a blueprint for the occupation of Britain. A supplement to this work was the Sonderfahndungsliste G.B. ('Special Search List G.B'), a list of 2820 prominent Britons to be arrested immediately after the successful invasion of the UK.
