Summary
"In the late 1930s...the world was again at war, hardly more than twenty years after the First World War had ended... Leaders of every country had to try to end the war as fast as possible and using whatever mean they could. That meant coming up with secret operations meant to deceive, deflect, and confuse their enemies."--
