Description

"Most of these surreptitious events would have been rejected by Hollywood film producers as implausible - yet they happened and helped to shape the outcome of the war."

Going beyond the well-known history, this book offers World War II buffs and history fans something altogether different. Just beneath the surface of the traditional perspectives and legendary events lurks a vast and shadowy world of virtually untraceable maneuvers, deceptive appearances, and confidences betrayed. Breuer deftly uncovers 70 covert operations and insidious plots, including:

  • The bloc of hard-core American Nazis who carded out elaborate plans to sabotage war efforts and keep the United States neutral
  • The wily Japanese "tailor" who singlehandedly stole the secrets to the United States Gray Code
  • The brave member of Norway's resistance movement who deeply infiltrated the German hierarchy, posing as a zealous Nazi
  • The French boy and his "blind" music teacher who penetrated, in broad daylight, the German forbidden zone at Port-en-Bessein

In the vivid, fast-paced tradition of Unexplained Mysteries of World War II, this far-reaching treasury of vanishing spies, mysterious kidnappings, and bizarre subplots is a unique and riveting addition to World War II literature.
