Covert Legions
U.S. Army Intelligence in Germany, 1944-1949

By Thomas Boghardt

Germany was ground zero of the early Cold War. From 1944 to 1949, the U.S. Army, along with America’s allies, occupied the defeated nation, and the Army’s intelligence services guided and executed U.S. policy in central Europe. Covert Legions tells the dramatic story of America’s secret soldiers as they battled Nazi resistance, built democracy, and monitored the Soviet threat.

Covert Legions is based on official intelligence records, including many documents declassified especially for this volume.
