Notes:

by SiegfriedSchwertner (WorldCat user on 2006-11-04)

Their names and faces are unknown, their stories are never spoken of, but their behind-the-scenes actions have turned the tide of history countless times. Spies, traitors, secret forces, assassins -- their actions are shrouded in darkness and secrecy, but now SPIES AND SECRET FORCES! brings their amazing stories to light. With stunning black and white illustrations and gripping information, this book will thrill young readers with tale after tale, from Elizabethan intrigue to World War II Nazi-resistance efforts, from Ancient Roman invasions to guerilla fighters in the Civil War.
