BIOGRAPHIC SKETCH ON GENERAL REINHARD GEHLEN

General Reinhard Gehlen is a professional military and
intelligence officer. Until his retirement on 30 *April 1968,
he was President of the Bundeanachrichtendienst (BED), the•
West German Federal Intelligence Service, as well as chief
of its predecessor organizations formed at the end of World
War II.
• General Gehlen was born 3 April 1902 in Erfurt. He
curreztly lives in Berg on the Sternberg Lake near Munich.
He finished his formal schooling in 1920 and entered the military- service directly. He received his commission as second
lieutenant in 1923 and served his initial tours of duty in
the horse artillery. He married in 1931 afid.in 1935 he attended the War Academy-in Berlin. At that time he held the
rank of captain. By 1939 and shortly before the outbreak of
World War II, he was promoted* to major. Be participated in
the 'Polish campaign, but 'by 1940 he Was transferred toe
headquarters post. At 'that time he became an aid 'to.
Genera/ Helder,. who.Was Chief of the General Staff. :Be was
promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1941 and became thief of
Fremde Heere Oat in 1942, '(rremde 'Heere 06 .t/Toreign Armies
Easf7 . was that section of the German High Command charged
wItEresponsibility for charting the' enemy order of battle
on the eastern front. It was, essentially an evaluation unit
and worked closely with the Abwehr. It did engage in line
crossing operations as' the war progressed, however.) Gehlen
received his promotion to colonel soon after taking over
Fremde Heere . Ost and by 1944 was promoted .to . brigadier general. /.32 the course of preparing estimates on enemy order
of battle, he reached the conclusion as early as 1943 that
the German cause'on . the . eastern front was lost,;AliThis continued pessimistic evaluations led to a reprimand from Hitler,
'and in the last days of the war he wee relieved of command
by order of Hitler, Long before that day General Gehlen had
• already consulted with senior members of hia staff and made
•plans to continue their efforts against the Russians after
- the inevitable capitulation of the German Army, but in cooperation' with the American Army; General Gehlen consequently cached his files in the Bavarian -Alps and withdrew
to that area in 'the final days of the war. He subsequently
surrendered to the Americans, and after his initial POW debriefings, he presented his plan for the continued collection
of order of battle information of the Soviet Armies.
General Gehlen was motivated by his strong view that the position of the Soviet Army so deep in Europe constituted a

real threat to Western civilization. His views were so
strong that he was able to convince his captors of these
views. He was then flown back to Washington in 1946 for
further debriefings, and the decision was made at the G-2
level to allow General Gehlen to reform his unit and to permit him to engage in a collection effort against the Soviet
Army in Eastern Europe. Some
were appropriated for this effort. --erSfieral Gehiciii)hil6666did
in reforming his unit and retrieving most of his files. He
operated under G-2 sponsorship from 1946 until 1949 when.CIA

assumed responsibility for the.Gehlen . organization as it was
then known. From 1949 until 1956 General Gehlen devoted his
full energies to legalizing his organization as the West

German Federal Intelligence Service. He achieved this goal
in March 1956 and thereby became its first president. He
became directly responsible to the Chancellor's officer.
After legalization he strove to develop his organization
into a world-wide intelligence service having collection capabilities and ltaison on a world-wide basis. He has gone a
lohg way toward accomplishing this goal.

As a personality General Gehlen still remains essentially
a professional military officer in habits and attitudes
though he never entered on active duty after World War II.
He is, however, a lieutenant general in the reserve. At one
time he was an accomplished horseman though he no longer permits himself this luxury, primarily because of time considerations. He is a family man and has four children. It is
believed General Gehlen leads a quiet life outside of his
Official duties. In all things he is essentially conservative, He rarely entertains, and he does not drink. His
English is fluent, and he is socially poised and very much
at ease among senior American officials. Since
his retire•
ment he has been engaged in writing his memeirs and compiling a history of the END.
General Gehlen was succeeded on 1 May 1968 by General
Gerhard Wessel, his adjutant in Fremde Heere Ost, who was

instrumental in assisting in the formation of the Gehlen or-

ganization. Wessel has served with the BND, the West German
Ministry of Defense, and the NATO Military Committee in
Washington and Brussels.

In seiner Nede vom 2.8.49 warnte Stactssekbetiir GRAF den VdU
vor der Zusamr_enarbeit mit Menschen vom ehemaligen Reichssic , lerheitsdien:t.Diese Redewendung ist unrichtig.Am 3o.7.49 war 61 nit

dass KRAUS mit Dr. HOTTL,dem ehem. Leiter des Mates VI E vom Neichsslcherheitshauptamt zurammenarbeite.und Mitt' der politische katgeber von Dr. Kraus sei.Dr. CANAVAL hat d on noch, in der Nacht

Interessant: - Die Nachricht

einen russischen Major an 61 und dieser wiederum dbergibt sie an
den Chefredakteur einer unabhdngigen Zeitung und der wiederum an

This tactical plan was conceived*as the only means of allowing time for a thorough investigation and identification of Odeum assets. to the extent to which it was hitherto possible. our operating principl€ as intermediaries to control and coordinate to our advantage the demands made upon Odeum assets through the development of official German security organs with the determi s nation of Odeum to become independent of our authority and achieve official recognition. under the best of circumstances.1 3.4-0. in his interest. and hence. go farther in the establishment of control of the future GIS than the gathering of accurate data on personalities and operations within the MUM complex. effective intelligence organization. This entire process has been accelerated and intensified by the rapid rehabilitation of German econdmic and political life. It has been. at least in UTILITY's eyes. in such a way as to complidate and impede the satisfactory fulfillment of the counter intelligence mission within Odeum. therefore.*At the same time. Thus. it has become increasingly evident that our ability to control and hold the loyalty of German intelligence workers. In the light of our strategy to date the present candidacy of UTILITY as chief of the Verfaasungsschutz must be treated as premature and strategically undesirable since we can at this time claim only partial control over Utility and his organization. We are not inclined to believe UTILITY after appointment as head of the Vervassungsschutz would attempt secretly to impede us in this endeavor. is weakened in direct proportion to the progress of the reestablishment of Germany'.

8.not unlikely that in the long run this combinations of qualifications and resources could make of UTILITY a more powerful political figure than any present member of the Bonn Government. There is nothing in his past political record or career nor in the course of his operations under our supervision which would promise. From the standpoint of our control of j future German intelligence. We must. It io. At the same time he enjoys semi-diplomatic . he would become a most desirable political asset within the Bonn Government. UTILITY is too powerful in his own right to be allowed to accept the position. UTILITY has risen since 1945 from the position of a relatively obscure member of the German General Staff to the position of a prime political strategist enjoying both the support of conservative political factions and of certain German industrialists. face the fact that although we may formally prescribe a total severance the ODEUM-UTILITY ties on his .4. And moveover. be quick to realize these opportunities and soon range beyond the. however. At the same time he has the advantage of his prolonged association with American intelligence which has given him the opportunity to make an accurate estimation of our major strategies and our strength. Clearly from the standpoint of German nationalist interests. relations with the major intelligence services of Western urope. Should UTILITY be offered and accept the position of the chief- of the VS. It is our impression that he would.us any control over his career in the future.normal duties assigned to him as chief of the VS. he will accept with the clear understanding that we recognize the act as a clear severance of his relations with an American sponsored intelligence operation. It should also be borne in mind that he enjoys cordial relations with ranking members of the German military and could easily becoma a focal point of German planning in that direction. hi n future rilations with us will be governed strictly by the regulations affecting his position areed upon by the High Commissioner and the Western German Government.

• 7. Appointment. become immediately the de facto head of German intelligence. contacts between the two. The opportunities for clandestine...-via allied intelligence in Germany. as well as legitimate excuses for official contact will be far too many for us effectively to monitor. even though we acknowledge the fact that such a man would soon find himself under the influence of UTILITY. It would be to our immediate tactical advantage to place in the position of chief of the VS a highly qualified technician with no political attachments. be to our advantage to hold him in our employment rather than to allow him to act independently on behalf of tbe Western German Government in intelligence matters. for the time being. Once UTILITY has asaumed this position we are prepared to renegotiate' .to suggest to him or to any other 1. but would put UTILITY in tionally effective position in which he would hold most of the cards an operavia-ay.• . nor do we intend.• . 6. It should be recognized also that to become the de facto head under these circumstances would not be an empty honor. private German citizen..-arties concerned that We will interfere in this matter ' with the authorities of the High Commissioner or members of the Western German Government. however. This means that with the official status and facilities provided him as head of the Verfassungsschutz and the comparative intelli- gence wealth of ODEUM more or less available to him UTILITY could. It would. Since ODSVM was founded on the principle of collaboration rather than on that of the paid agent relationship. . On the other hand his political prestige is sudh that he represents an operational obstacle in our command of t‘le Odeum operation. It is not our intention to hold UTILITY in Odeum by arguments of indispensibility to the operation. we are compelled to treat UTILITY's candidacy or similar candidacies ostensibly as a matter between the Western German Government and 4. it will in practice be an impossible dictum to enforce. or unreported. and almost • undoubtedly will.

As a . It seems likely. career. and actions since 1945 UTILITY presently or potentially represents the conservative German nationalistic cause. Our success in this program will depend to a very great extent on the degree to which UTILITY maintains. UTILITY: Judging from his social backgtound. through intermediaries. . particularly with Prance. Although a Protestant he has allied himself closely with influential Catholic factione bcth inside and outside 'Germany. or attempts to maintain. Political Estimate 1. our only course of action would be to follow up leads which would take advantage Of disaffection and separatist tendencies with the organization. for UTILITY to relinquish meekly all control over It.our relations with the remaining German operators in Odeum in a further attempt to reduce them from collaborator to agent otatus and to insist upon that agent control data which is necessary for the expedition and completion of the 050 counter intelligence mission within the operation. all nominations to key positions within the ODEUM operating staff will be subject to our approval. continue to exert a considerable influence over ODEUM is most probable. He is on recora as believing in the closest possible political and economic collaboration between Germany and Western Europe. All existing relationships with political representatives and Private industry will be subjected to our review and approval. both for UTILITY personally and for the future GIS. Although in this way we could probably neutralize UTILITY's support within the organization we might find that in the process we had lessened the efficiency of ODEUM by lending support to rival factions. It will be our intention to treat Odeum from that point onward as any other operation conducted by this organization in Germany. That UTILITY could. an Influence on the organization. that were UTILITY to continue to make his Influence felt in CDEUM. II. Furthermore. It seems fair to assume that ODEUM will represent too big a plum.

Regardless of who succeeds UTILITY as head of ODEUM. was due to his conviction that their activities would be aimed against the left only. Kurt Schumacher inquired as to the internal political ambitions of ODEUN and especially of UTILITY. Although he is apparently not closely associated with what we know of present German militaristic ambitions. This view. 2. ao a protagonist. He explained that regardless of the professional intelligence qualifications involved the SPD could not agree to the establishment of ODSUM as an official CI agency. and the latter as a tool. This alfte Would seem clear cut evidence that the SPD will oppose UTILITY's candidac y to head the Yerfassungsschuti. at least by Schumacher. It is much more likely to suppose that he will be branded as a representative of neo-Fascism in Germany . he maid. he does have a direct connection: to General SPEIDEL and an unclarified connection with rederal Reconstruction Minister .that with UTILITY's appointment to head the Verfassungeschutz both the TerfasSungsschuts and ODNUM would be in the hands of German General Staff types. Political Position within Germany: It is our belief that the appointment of UTILITY to the position of chief of the VS will be immediately interpreted by the leftist opposition to the Born Government as a political appointment.. but he has ambitiously cultivated prominent German industrialists and members of the landed aristocracy. The first of these is Viewed. He has not shown open antagonism toward leftist political factions with the exception of Communism.Eberhard Wildermuth.former German general he is closely associated with other prominent members of that class although he has not directly associated himself with what we know of present German militaristic ambitions. It is a fact. of resurgent German militarism. but we cannot ignore the possibility that Adenauer has . There Is no reason to believe that UTILITY will find support within the ranks of the OD. arsufficient number of general officers will remain in the top staff to exert a definitive inflnence qn the character of the organization. In recent conversations with an OSO representative.

Agit

made some sort of deal with the SPD to secure its approval. Vigorous and
outspoken opposition to UTILITY in Schumacher's customary fire breathing
style could well develop into a diatribe against the Americans and American
intelligence methods in Germany. The charge could be made that UTILITY had
been chosen for this particular position as an instrument of political oppression in Germany. He is even more vulnerable to collabcrationiets charges. If
it appeared to be a rewarding step in party strategy a personal attack could
be launched against him from the standpoint of his collaboration with American
intelligence, former German generals and menbern:of the Abwehr and even the
SD and the SS which might result in a complete exposure of the Odeum operation
and grave embarrassment to our foreign policy. .
3.

French Political Position: Through our investigations of the Odeum

operation, it has become evident that UTILITY would be supported as a candidate
by the rightist factions of French intelligence and therefore most likely have
the approval of French rightist politicians who were concerned. UTILITY himself
has made a consistent effort to ingratiate himself with French intelligence and
to advertise his strong faithq in a German-French'entente l . In addition to
this we have collected evidence to show that French intelligence has been
successful in the clandestine penetration of certain aspects of the Odeum
complex. This penetration should have supplied enough information to alley
French authorities to come to an independent estimate of the extent of the
operation and UTILITY's qualifications for a position in the VS. It is worth
noting that in contras:, to the British the French have made no official representations to American authorities against the operatiein.
4.

British Political Position: The British have repeatedly since the

inception of the operation expressed misgivings about the security and political
consequences of the operation. We have received these representations officially
and unofficially through British military channels as well as through the Foreip

Office. Successful British penetrations of the operation have allowed them

,

to conclude that the elements of Odeum are to be treated as powerful forces
toward German nationalism or the renascence of Fascism. It is also the British
contention that elements of the former German Abwehr are to be treated as constituting present day German intelligence which is primarily aimed at the penetration and neutralization of British and American intelligence in Germany. If
these allegations are sincere, it can be expected that the British will strongly
oppose UTILITY'S candidacy. This would also be in line with their policy toward
the SPD. To the best of our knowledge the British are not prepared to propose
an alternate to UTILITY' which suggests also that the British have not attached.
great importance to an appointment to this office at this time, but will rely
on their right to disapprove any candidate.
5. Setablishment of GIS: In all probability, the official recognition of
UTILITY, together with hts continued, if unofficial, connection with ODZUM, will
establish him as the de facto head of German intelligence, and very 'likely, aa
one of the most powerful men in Germany. If we regard such a development as
inevitable, then we mightwell welcome UTILITY as the seledtiOn. Although he
will probably not be unduly swayed bycgratitude toward us, he is unquestionably
Western oriented, and all three of the Western Allies have penetrated his operations to a degree sufficient to afford at least a window into his future activities. The other side of the coin may or may not be politically more attractive-in setting up UTILITY as the de facto head of German Intelligence, we are taking
a long step toward the creation of a strong, effective, friendly intelligence
service capable of playing an independent though allied role in the security of
Western urope.

ing.A t.ndsnoy to. run around end, often when a line plunge
is clearly in order. The most spectacular example wa g the McCLOI
meetb
his repeated efforts during the summer to
ciroumvent CAFILkvia )abiERMUTlii.and his more recent efforts to
circumvont . C7.. via GLOM. These have not invariably been
unsueeessfUi, but the yardage gained has been mostly lateral.
c. A tendency to self-deception. This is revealed most convincingly in his reporting. The list of meetings of which we have
received one version from. UTILITY and a highly divergent one from
the party of the second. part is. too long and too well known to
require enumeration. On the basis of .a recent review of the record
on this score covering a period of a year, I am prepared to accept.
the probability that in the majority. of cases the version offered
by the party of the second part is rightend-UTIL/TY's wrong, or
at least that the former is more nearly right . than UTILITI l e. This
is not necessarily proof that UTILITY is a congenital or pathological liar, although he is certainly neither incapable of nor particularly averse 'to lying when it suite his purposes. .It has •
always seemed to MA that .UYILITI, sines he is by nature both vain

This also explains his simultaneous employment of mutually destructive
'tactics. He pays lip service to the devices of negotiation and compreMiss,
and is encouraged in this . direction by his own and the American staffe.
He makes elaborate plans and goes through the motions, inaluding a lot of
strenuous travel, but his heart is not in it, and his hopes of'succecs are
artificial, essentially a delusion. He is really bent on destruction, and
the objects of his jealous malevolence sense it, which is not remarkable
under the eircumst:Inoes. UTILITY's destructive impulses are genuine .and
intones, and he finds it impossible not to translate them into action._
'
action is.usmiLly conspicuous, is, for example,campaignagainst OAFILA
.and his present:tireless efforts to prove OAPOTEla oriental orientation.
All this is not ineompatible with UTILItY l arather successful record in
dealing with foreign intelligence services. They ars not rivals, and when
UT/LiTt l e hiebie-jiebies are not agitated, he is capable of negotiating
effectively and of making a good personal impression.
4. So much for the debits. The credit side is hardly less impressive,
and it explains why'he has survived for so many years, both in the German
Army and under American sponsorship, while aurrounded . bymen of such stature'
as GUDERIAN, MATZNIT, SPEIDEL, FOERTSCH, KOERM/G, HORN, MARKER, and WOLLMAINI,
most of whom outrank him. .I do not believe that UTILITY is yam well liked,
and it is a . fait:. that:many of his aelleaguei recognize his.faults.and
disapprove . of:hia politicking, if not of his policies; . which, • in his case.;
are by no MASI= the same thing. But; one and all, they acknowledge his
accomplishment in the creation of ZIPPER and his forelight 4 -initiativeand:diplomatie skill which made it possible, not to mention the 'courage
which'itmusthaveirequiredlor a German'General to make such a: deal with

When,'yartioularly.in Franee,sa:good many People .itre'being ' shotor locked..
Up Whose only
was that 'of having collaborated,' .under somewhat similar
circumstances, with the Germans only a few yeara.before.
•.

5. Another, important factor on the credit'side is UTILIIVe reputation
em' the outstandin%-authority in Germany on the armed forces of the Soviet
Union. This derives from his former position as Chief of Fremde. Hoare Oat,
as well as from his present position as the head of. an Organization which
is . 'referredto0v.those'nuMerousZermane,who know about it significantly'
asthe"Organization:UTILIMI. or:othe- "UTILITY Organization." .UTILITIts

6. With respect to UTILITT's administrative, executive and operational abilities they are admittedly not inaonsiderable although certainly
n
ifluenced
for the worse by those Repeats of his character disowned in
17d, above, as reflected in his penchant for exclusive managentat, his
habit of eoneentrating on matterssertinent to his on career rather than
' on the operational details associated with career objectives already
attained, 'and a perceptible if not , dominant predilection forsimephants
in his immOdiati entourage. These are not,. however, elements of primary
