Synopsis

A behind-the-scenes look into the shadows of espionage during WWII Through over eighty intriguing tales of World War II, author William B. Breuer reveals previously unknown nuggets of espionage lore that involved deceptions, illusions, and masquerades. Readers will find tales of how Greta Garbo spied for the British against the Nazis, how a wealthy American heiress became a Nazi spy in Washington, DC, a German plot to kidnap Pope Pius XII, how two Nazi spies toured the White House, and much more. Breuer painstakingly collected these stories through personal interviews, official archives, declassified documents, books, articles, and magazines. This engaging book offers something for every World War II buff.
