GERMAN INTELLIGENCE IN WWII 

They were the top spymasters in the Third Reich… two rivals who were shrouded in mystery and sworn to secrecy. With thousands of agents at their command, they were entrusted with Germany’s most sensitive intelligence operations in World War Two. In the end, one man would kill for Hitler, the other would betray him…

BRITISH SECRET INTELLIGENCE IN WWII
They were the English spies before “James Bond.” They operated in the shadows with innocuous names like the Special Operations Executive, MI-5 and MI-6, but their missions were deadly serious. Amazing facts that are stranger than fiction in the storied history of Britain’s intelligence service during the Second World War.

BREAKING THE JAPANESE CODE
The story of America’s code-breaking efforts against seemingly impenetrable secret Japanese military and diplomatic communications. The heroic struggle of Army code-breakers, headed by William Friedman, and the Navy’s secret “on-the-roof-gang” to help win the Battle of the Pacific.

WEAPONS OF THE SHADOW WAR
They were the stuff of fantasy and terror. Instruments of sabotage and clandestine operations. Born of great desperation and used under the cover of darkness, special tools of spies and espionage agents delivered war to the heart of the enemy on the invisible battleground…

WOMEN SPIES IN WORLD WAR II
They were unlikely heroes who fought behind enemy lines in every theater of World War Two. Female spies unearthed secrets, supported the resistance and destroyed the morale of the enemy. From women OSS agents dropped behind enemy lines, to female radio operators inside the Third Reich, stories of the decisive intelligence-gathering role women played in the war…

THE CAMBRIDGE FIVE
They were five disillusioned young men studying at Cambridge University in the 1930’s when they were secretly recruited by Soviet agents. They went on to become the most successful spies of the 20th century, penetrating both American and British governments at the highest levels.

STALIN’S SPIES

THE O.S.S.

ROOSEVELT’S SPYMASTERS

D-DAY DECEPTIONS
It was the greatest secret of World War Two… the time and place of the D-Day invasion. As the future of Europe and the world hung in the balance, an intricate web of lies tied up German army divisions across Europe – concealing the greatest assembly of men and machines in military history. From double agents to phantom armies, it was the battle behind the battle…
