Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
This short book provides extensive information about Allied and Nazi spies during World War II. It shares bibliographic information about several key players in the intelligence game and places them in the context of the use of information during the war. The book includes information on famous German spies, such as U.S. citizen Frederick Duquesne, who tried to secure victory for Hitler and his forces. It also provides details about the increasing use of spies among American and Allied forces, as well as the extensive work performed by the British spy agency MI5. The text highlights such notorious spies as Arabel (known to the Allies as Pujol or Garbo) who managed to misdirect Nazi forces on the eve for the Normandy invasion—a major step in the beginning of the ultimate Allied victory. Readers also learn how both Allies and Axis powers used methods such as Morse code and pigeons to relay information across Europe. The text is generally easy to read and the photographs are very compelling, providing a high-interest text that will appeal to a variety of readers. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
