Interesting tidbit about dollar-a-year men (reminds me of Steve Jobs). Also description of a huge air raid on Berlin, which notes it was the 53rd, reminds both of how sustained the allied air game was at the time and also of where all the US industrial production was, in large part, going.

Interesting article here about German spies allying with a sitting senator (who mysteriously died in a plane crash), a publishing house and “America Firsters” to spread pro-Nazi materials.
