Summary
In November 1942, American spymaster Allen Dulles slipped into Switzerland just before Nazi forces sealed the border. His mission: to report on the inner workings of the Third Reich. Code-named Agent 110 by the OSS, he discovered a network of Germans -- industrialists, students, diplomats, and generals -- conspiring to overthrow Hitler. Dulles was reluctant to help what looked like a lost cause. The Gestapo had penetrated anti-Nazi rings, rounding up their members with ruthless efficiency. Brave attempts to stage a coup or blow Hitler's plane from the sky had failed. Dulles also knew there was little appetite in Washington for giving the German underground what they coveted most -- the assurance that Germany would be well treated after the war. Instead, President Franklin Roosevelt would accept nothing less from Germany than unconditional surrender. Aided by his mistress, an American journalist, Dulles built a network of secret agents and secured the trust of resistance leaders. In clandestine meetings on bridges, in cemeteries, and high in the Alps, he became convinced that Moscow aimed to dominate postwar Europe. His new German friends offered him a chance to thwart those ambitions. Agent 110 organized commando raids and schemed to protect his informants from the Gestapo. He desperately sought Washington's support in Operation Valkyrie, a plan that nearly succeeded in killing Hitler, and worked with a ruthless Nazi SS general to secure the surrender of all German forces in Italy. Dulles himself would eventually lead the CIA during the Cold War, driven by his wartime distrust of the Soviets
