9780802142313: A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich: The Extraordinary Story of Fritz Kolbe, America's Most Important Spy in World War II

In 1943 a young official from the German foreign ministry contacted Allen Dulles, an OSS officer in Switzerland who would later head the Central Intelligence Agency. That man was Fritz Kolbe, who had decided to betray his country after years of opposing Nazism. While Dulles was skeptical, Kolbe's information was such that he eventually admitted, "No single diplomat abroad, of whatever rank, could have got his hands on so much information as did this man; he was one of my most valuable agents during World War II." Using recently declassified materials at the U.S. National Archives and Kolbe's personal papers, Lucas Delattre has produced a work of remarkable scholarship that moves with the swift pace of a Le Carré thriller.

From AudioFile:

From the archives of WWII comes this spy story as engaging as any novel. Fritz Kolbe, a worker in the German foreign ministry, used his diplomatic missions between Berlin and Switzerland to pass important war information to American agents. The constant threat of discovery by the Gestapo put him in mortal danger. Michael Prichard botches the few Spanish words in the text but does much better with the German. His brisk pace keeps abundant details from slowing the story, and his clear, distinct voice makes the narration easy to understand. The combination of a reader known for skill at nonfiction and the fascinating elements of Kolbe's deceptions creates an inspirational nugget of U.S. history.
