Are you willing to undertake a dangerous mission behind the enemy line knowing that you may never return alive? This was the question asked during the war to agents of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) ordinary citizens who to this question answered yes. Black Warfare, espionage and international intrigue, these are the weapons of the OSS.

The Brenner Pass is the story of an American engineer who single handed cut off the escape of part of the German army in Italy from onrushing American troops and was suggested by actual incidents recorded in the Washington files of the Office of Strategic Services.
