"Commando missions to capture Germany's greatest scientific minds pitted the Allies against each other in the waning days of World War II. At stake: crucial advantage in the looming Cold War and the capability to exploit advanced German know-how to build the next generation of fighter planes, missiles and bombs. With both the Russians and the Americans desperate to acquire Germany's brightest minds and secrets, the race was cutthroat and deadly. Secrets of the Dead tracks the clandestine missions of front line agents and reveals how close Hitler came to developing weapons that could have won him the war and changed the course of human history."
