Howard Blum talked about his book, Dark Invasion: 1915: Germany’s Secret War and the Hunt for the First Terrorist Cell in America, in which he recounts the story of German espionage in the U.S. during WWI. In his book, he details the ways German spies engaged in sabotage, germ warfare, and assassination attempts in order to disrupt American operations even before it entered the war. He also discusses the way New York Police Department inspector Tom Tunney tracked those spies and the challenges he faced that led to modern counterterrorism strategy. close
