This classic account of the German Resistance during World War II remains one of the primary sources on a topic that continues to generate controversy more than a half century after the war’s end. As OSS (office of strategic services) chief of station in Bern, Switzerland, from 1942 to 1945, Dulles was charged with determining the extent and commitment of the opposition to Hitler.Germany’s Underground is the most important firsthand account we have of Allied contact with that opposition--and the most concise and readable history of the men and women from every stratum of German society who made up this complex web.
