This book details the activities of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), an intelligence agency of the United States, during its brief existence during World War II. Casey, a former staff officer for the heads of the Washington and London branches of the OSS, uses his personal experiences, interviews, and documents to cover the development of the OSS and its engagement in North Africa, Europe, and later in the Pacific. He describes many of the major battles and invasions of the war and the aid provided by the British intelligence services to the Americans. Casey devotes a chapter to the bombing of the German heavy water plant in Norway, which was assisting German atomic experimentation. Local resistance and sabotage efforts also play a part in this story. Numerous facsimiles of OSS documents are contained in an appendix.
