The story of the Office of Strategic Service, how it was conceived and built up by General Donovan, as reported by two men assigned to it. The agency was clocked in mystery during the war, and is here revealed as the agency that coordinated the resistance movements of occupied countries with the military strategy of the Allies, and that accumulated and centralized inter-Allied Intelligence.

Here's true adventure -- basic factual material for a new angle on war.
