Product description

In the chaos following World War II, some of the greatest spoils of Germany's resources were the Third Reich's scientific minds. The US government secretly decided that the value of these former Nazis' knowledge outweighed their crimes and began a covert operation code-named Paperclip to allow them to work in the United States without the public's knowledge. Drawing on exclusive interviews and with access to archival documents, files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and newly found dossiers, Annie Jacobsen follows more than a dozen German scientists through their postwar lives and into one of the most complex, nefarious, and jealously guarded government secrets of the twentieth century.
