From Our Editors

 Although the people of Hitler's Germany lived under a cloud of perpetual fear, there were brave men and women who risked - and sometimes lost - their lives to oppose the third Reich. Germany's Underground is the fascinating story of German citizens who remained in contact with the Allies during the Second World War, and who helped to bring the evil of Nazism to an end. Told by former OSS chief and CIA director Allen Welsh Dulles, this is a fascinating and true story of heroism and espionage.
