Spies! Special Missions! Codes and Ciphers! History comes to life with 19 stories of ingenuity and intrigue from World War II.

Discover the secrets behind some of the real-life deceptions that turned the tide of World War II. Meet double-crossing secret agents like Arthur Owens (code-named Snow), who spied for both the Nazis and the British! Witness airborne assaults by daredevils such as Otto "Scarface" Skorzeny, "the most dangerous man in Europe." Smash through "unbreakable" barriers like the A-3 Scrambler, the American encryption system used to communicate with British allies!

Each spellbinding true story is packed with information sidebars, archival photographs, and full-color maps, allowing the reader to go behind the scenes of World War II and learn the secrets that outwitted the enemy.
