PLOT: the real stories about Nazi Spies in America.
the Germans prepared for WAR with the United States well before it was declared. in the late 1930s Nazi Germany was busy recruiting American Germans to spy for them. They used a combo of blackmail, national loyalty to the "father land" (GERMANY) and bribery. People in aircraft factories and munitions plants forked over the plans for many guns and even the legendary Norden Bomb Sight.... This is their story. William G. Sebold was born in Germany became a naturalized American Citizen. He became the means to capture many Nazis in America. We also see the growth of the FBI through Hoover. This is interesting and though a bit overly long it is full of the many "groups" of Spies located all over the USA. It tells HOW the Nazis recruited and gathered information. Much of this info was used to BASE the movies Confessions of a Nazi Spy and The House on 92nd Street. the ONLY thing that is a total shame is Sebold was not helped by the FBI after he was done spying and died in poverty and having mental illness with it. all very sad. Still a good way to view the many spies and how they functioned inside the USA before and during World War 2. 3 STARS...
