not least because

What is the exact meaning of the words in bold?

“nfortunately, it is difficult to learn from the captured documents, all of which have now been released by MI5,17 precisely how Mayr succeeded in organizing such an extensive network with so few resources at his disposal, not least because, when CICI Tehran let Schulze-Holthus loose on the records after his capture n 1944, he neatly deconstructed them, revealing that much written by Franz Mayr in his diary and other documents was either poorly translated, wildly inaccurate, or pure imagination.”

Thanks endlessly.

Answer

It means that the main reason why it is difficult to learn from the captured documents is that Schulze-Holthus minimised their value, relevance and accuracy.
