Secrets & Spies takes you on a unique journey into the past, revealing startling facts about wartime events long cloaked in mystery. Many of these stories were unknown to the public before their original appearance in the pages of The Readers Digest. Now, brought together for the first time, they present every facet of secret warfare from the covert operations of German and Japanese spies in America long before Pearl Harbor to the dropping of the atom bomb.

The articles cover such topics as: the wild gamble taken by Winston Churchill to smuggle Britains national treasure of billions in gold across the U-boat-infested Atlantic to Canada, the secret arming of 200,000 in the French resistance under the Nazis noses, the daring night attacks on British battleships by Italys famed frogmen, the invasion of the United States by two bands of Nazi saboteurs, the nerve-edge mission of General Mark Clark to Africa and his narrow escape, the dead man who outwitted Hitlers brainiest espionage chiefs, the campaign of fakery that masked the time and place of the Normandy landings, the macabre details of Hitlers last moments before his strange death, the story behind the first atom bomb and the undercover corps that guarded it, Hirohitos desperate struggle against the military for Japans surrender.
