Description
Critical Acclaim for TOP SECRET TALES of World War II""A book for rainy days and long solitary nights by the fire. If there were a genre for cozy nonfiction, this would be the template.""-Publishers Weekly""Perfect for the curious and adventure readers and those who love exotic tales and especially history buffs who will be surprised at what they didn't know. Recommended for nearly everyone.""-Kirkus ReviewsThis war was fought by soldiers out of uniform. Stealth and ingenuity were their weapons. Victory was their only code of conduct.In Top Secret Tales of World War II, noted military historian William Breuer documents espionage-in all its forms-as it evolved in the hands of both Allied and Axis agents of intelligence and counterintelligence. Here you'll find riveting tales of patriotism and treachery, subversion and sabotage, kidnappings and assassinations, and bribes and blackmailing-with frequently startling revelations about the secret wars behind both the battlefields and the headlines.
