An American born boy grew up in Greece and while still in high school he joined a resistance organization during the German occupation. Avoiding capture by the Gestapo, he was evacuated to Egypt.

In Cairo, he was recruited by the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) and received six months of spy training. Transformed into an adept and skillful spy, he was sent on a dangerous mission back to Greece, and his messages on German troop movements to OSS HQ in Cairo inflicted great losses to the enemy.

The peculiar methods utilized to transform him into a spy are described in detail. Also, the many hair-raising cloak-and-dagger experiences of actual confrontations with the Gestapo and the skillful ways used to avoid capture make this book a very interesting reading and one of its kind.
