Mr. O’Donnell talked about his book, Operatives, Spies, and Saboteurs: The Unknown Story of the Men and Women of World War II’s OSS, published by Free Press. In the book, Mr. O’Donnell uses first-person narratives of Office of Strategic Services operatives, as well as recently declassified records, to reconstruct the actions and contributions of the OSS and its operatives during World War II. Founded in 1941, the OSS was the highly secretive, dynamic, and virtually unregulated predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency. Following prepared remarks, Mr. O’Donnell responded to questions from the audience, many of whom were OSS and or CIA veterans. close
