Reading progress update: I've read 87 out of 575 pages of "Operation Paperclip."

Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America - Annie Jacobsen

I have finished part one of this book during which the war against Germany is soon coming to a close and the Americans are trying to find out which doctors, chemists, scientists, etc. were in charge of the German's rocket, medical, and other research programs. In part one readers follow Operation Alsos, the Combined Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee (CIOS), the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey (USSBS), and other groups as they try to find that information and capture those men.

 

It was really horrifying to read about what those men had done and it is also horrifying to think that the U.S. desperately wanted to find them so that they could recruit them. This has been really well written so far and absolutely fascinating. I look forward to reading more of this book.
