Bookfilter: I want to read books that are similar to "Saturn is almost invisible" by Vasily Ardamatsky.

I read this book (translated in English) several years ago (found it in an old book store that sold nothing but old soviet books), and have re-read it many times since. It is historical adventure fiction based around certain events in WW-II (one amazon review here
Quote from review: "The book is a work of fiction based on some real characters in WW-II, particularly Wilhelm Canaris from AbWehr who forms a satellite military intelligence center "Saturn" in occupied Soviet territory to pin the blame for defeat, in case of the failure of German offensive. Soviet counterintelligence painstakingly infiltrates the center and gradually submerges it with disinformation which leads to catastrophic failure of German military intelligence on the central front. The novel seamlessly blends real historic personalities and situations with fantastic spy fiction.
Please recommend similar books. Bonus points if I can buy them in Sydney, but I am happy order through Amazon.
