By the author of The Nazis Next Door, this is narrative history at its best: the remarkable, little known story of Fred Mayer, a German-born Jew, who with his family fled to the U.S. from Nazi Germany soon after Kristallnacht. His story would sound like paperback fiction if it weren’t so well documented in the files of the U.S. National Archives. Mayer enlisted in the U.S. Army and was soon recruited by the Office of Strategic Services (forerunner of the CIA) to lead an audacious spy mission, parachuting into Austria and posing undercover in three different disguises as a Nazi loyalist. His work provided invaluable intelligence to the Allies that helped to defeat Hitler. Captured and tortured by the Germans, he conducted negotiations with his captors to secure his own release – and his captors’ surrender – as Allied forces closed in. Fans of Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken will want to read RETURN TO THE REICH
