Sunday, July 10, 2022
This Week on History Happy Hour: During WWII, a top-secret facility 15 miles from the White House conducted intelligence and espionage operations kept secret for more than 50 years. The facility at Fort Hunt was known only by its codename: PO Box 1142.
Here, fifteen German generals and thousands of other high value Nazi prisoners were bugged and questioned by American interrogators, many of whom were themselves German born Jews.
Chris and Rick welcome Robert K. Sutton, author of Nazis on the Potomac: The Top-Secret Intelligence Operation that Helped Win World War II.
An extraordinary story saved from the dustbin of history, Sunday at 4 PM on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
