The Red Orchestra (Witnesses to War)
To quote from the back of the bk: "Gilles Perrault's tense and dramatic documentary history depicts the rise and fall of the notorious Soviet spy ring the Germans called the Red Orchestra, which operated within the highest circles of the German General Staff from 1941 to 1944." It's mind-boggling to think about the courage that some people have during wartime. The 'Red Orchestra' threw parties for SS staff where they plied them w/ women who fucked them to glean their military secrets & got funding from them by selling black market goods. Interestingly, the technique of triangulation was supposedly developed by the nazis to find hidden radios of resistance groups.
