"The climax of a subterranean struggle among the victorious Allies immediately after World War II, 'Project Paperclip' was the War Department's code name for its successful plan to rewrite the records of German scientists and smooth the way for their entry into the United States. These men, many of whom had been classified as 'ardent Nazis,' were selected, just weeks after Hitler's defeat, to become respectable American citizens."--Book Jacket.
