Excerpt

This book describes a conspiracy in search of a theory. It purports to show how the most precious military orders of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich made their way from the Führer's headquarters to Joseph Stalin's within days -- sometimes hours -- of being issued.

Involved are two beautiful women and another who is a disheveled genius. One of these women is said to have controlled the entire operation from Red Army headquarters in the heart of Moscow. the men include a mapmaker, an adventurist who plotted to assassinate Hitler, and a Red Army spy whose exploits even Ian Fleming could appreciate. the conspiracy involves a far-flung network of couriers, cutouts, and go-betweens. There are dead-letter drops, secret rendezvous, and even invisible ink, all conducted under the nose of the Gestapo. in fact, German secret police helped the conspirators, as did someone standing beside Hitler -- welcomed into his secret chambers -- a man known as "Werther."

Most of all, the conspiracy produces an astonishing result: Hitler's Germany is demolished while the Soviet Union becomes a world superpower. It is one of the most improbable tales that could be told even in these conspiracy-minded times.

Unfortunately for historians, who must deal with the conspiracy, it is all true. It is well documented in files that historians have already written about and in other secret files that this book addresses. There is no doubt about the conspiracy or, in fact, about almost all of the conspirators. It is the theory that is missing. How did it all work so perfectly well? How did it go undetected by Hitler?
