Event Details

Come join us on Zoom for a one-hour presentation all about the art of espionage during World War II, as presented by battlefield scholar Robert Mueller.

Total war led to total espionage as each major participant in the Second World War attempted to fathom the actions of the opposition-- and in some cases even of its allies. The results ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous, but there was nothing humorous about this deadly game. Like chess, each move engendered a countermove. This program reviews some of most famous and some little-remembered espionage efforts of the war, including German saboteurs landing on America's East Coast, Japanese efforts against Pearl Harbor, Soviet penetration into the Atomic bomb's Manhattan Project, British Enigma decryption of German radio transmissions, and more!
