War of Shadows: Codebreakers, Spies, and the Secret Struggle to Drive the Nazis from the Middle East

Hosted By: Maven

Join noted historian and journalist Gershom Gorenberg in conversation with AJU’s Michael Berenbaum for the real story of how the Nazis came within an inch of conquering the Middle East during World War II. Gershom’s latest book, War of Shadows, began with a conversation in Jerusalem that set off years of searching through archives for long-secret documents, through attics for lost papers, through streets in Cairo, Rome, London – seeing facts unravel and new ones take shape. Gershom’s obsessive hunt led to the discovery of a Nazi source in British headquarters in Cairo and his book tells the story of the race for information in the North African theater of World War II, set against intrigues that spanned the Middle East.
