Summary
An American aristocrat from a prominent New England family, Truman Smith was first assigned to Germany in 1919 and soon became known as a regional expert. During his second spell in the country as a military attaché in 1935, he arranged for his friend Charles Lindbergh to inspect the Luftwaffe, enabling Smith to gather key intelligence about the German air capability. His savvy cultivation of relationships rendered him invaluable throughout his service, but his friendliness with Germany also aroused suspicion that he was a Nazi sympathizer. Gole demonstrates that in fact Smith predicted many of the Nazis' moves years in advance
