Feel like a real spy as you read the true stories of some of the best secret agents for the allied forces during World War II. Merlin Minshall leads a mission to delay ships from delivering war supplies to Germany. When the mission fails, he escapes on a speedboat. Josephine Baker is an entertainer who uses her fame to carry top secret information without being suspected. Ian Fleming helps start a group of secret agents which later inspired him to create the character, James Bond. Virginia Hall helped the French Resistance get supplies and training. Morris Berg was an American baseball player who was recruited to find out if the Germans had discovered how to make an atom bomb. While each of these spies played a different role in the war, each was important in helping the Allies succeed and end the war.
