I found this book quite helpful in my own research for my WWII book, Into the Lion's Mouth. The material on Albrecht Engels (who ran the German radio, code named BOLIVAR) was especially useful.

The Abwehr had also tasked Engels to find out about American progress on the atom bomb, a task which Engels passed on to the subject of my book, Dusko Popov.
