The unpublished story of a group of exiled republicans serving the United States Army in Spain during WWII.
Organized around the Banana and Apricot Operations, these agents disembarked in the shores of Málaga as spies to prevent Spain from a Germany invasion. The operations were organized by the Office of Strategic Services, predecessor of the CIA. The risky decision will be converted in the most erratic and tragic operation of the American Spionage during the War.
Through an exhaustive study of American and British files, Spanish summaries, PCE and private documents, as well as the testimony of relatives and historians, we reveal the key information of the operations of the American Spionage in Spain during WWII.
