Summary
Even before America declared war against Germany in World War II, Nazi agents operated a very effective ring of German-American spies within the U.S. When German native (and American citizen) William Sebold went to Germany in 1939 to visit family, German intelligence officers tried to recruit him. Sebold, however, contacted the FBI when he returned to New York and agreed to supply information on Nazi espionage. In Double Agent, which reads as much like a spy thriller as a work of history, journalist Peter Duffy provides exciting details of Sebold's work. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
