Description
In 1942, eight German saboteurs came ashore in Florida, intending to unleash a wave of terror attacks against America. They might have succeeded, were it not for a traitor in their ranks: distrustful of Hitler's regime and sympathetic to the American cause, George Dasch had alerted the FBI to the group's plans. As shown in David Alan Johnson's history, J. Edgar Hoover's promises that Dasch would be treated fairly soon came to naught, as the captured Germans became part of a carefully orchestrated wartime propaganda campaign. Johnson also explains how the legal wrangling over whether the men would be tried in a military court would set a precedent used six decades later to justify holding prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.
