Say the word “spies” and most people think of computers and satellites. Not so during WWII, when the U.S. created the Office of Special Services (OSS), a group of agents who helped prepare the Allies for their most important missions, including the landing at Normandy. These men--and often women--overcame great obstacles, and their generally untold stories not only are fascinating, they were critical for success in the war. The OSS’s actions also set the stage for all the spies and operatives who would follow them. Christopher Lane’s reading gives proper due to these agents, who did everything from acts of sabotage to seducing military leaders in order to learn secret codes. He clearly relishes these tales, and his interest and enthusiasm for Patrick K. O’Donnell’s superb book shine through at every turn. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
