them with the weirder side of World War II. Featuring a cast of characters including double- and triple-

to just-plain-bizarre. For instance, there's the one about how reputed Irish Republican Army members in
New York conned Nazi intelligence out of a small fortune. There's also a thrilling account of how four

1938 and simply vanished into a cloudless summer sky...
