Join us as we discuss Agent 146: The True Story of a Nazi Spy in America by Erich Gimpel.
Agent 146 is the the autobiography of one of the only Nazi spies to reach the USA. During 9/44 Germany is burning at both ends. The Reich is crumbling. Word has reached Berlin that the Americans are testing a secret weapon of unbelievable destruction, a weapon that will win the war. The Fuhrer himself calls upon Agent 146 in a last ditch effort to sabotage America’s atomic program. Two months later, a German U-boat surfaces off Maine’s coast. Agent 146 & an American turncoat named William Collepaugh sneak ashore. Down the coast they go, ending up in New York. Once there, a fascinating game of cat & mouse begins as the FBI attempts to close in on the elusive Nazi spy.
