Author Ladislas Farago, a lifelong student of espionage and an important figure in U.S. Naval Intelligence in World War II, stumbled across a treasure trove of documents which had remained untouched in a dark loft of the National Archives for over twenty years. Included in this mass of documents was microfilm containing the secret records of the Abwehr organizations conducting the espionage operations, with records of every name -- real and cover -- of every agent, every mark spent, and every report received, every order given. With these revelations as a base, Farago spent the next four years interviewing surviving intelligence operators on both sides, supplementing, confirming and correcting the disclosures those supposedly destroyed documents contained.''
