The stories of some of the more notorious traitors like William Joyce (Lord Haw-Haw) and P.G. Wodehouse are already well known -- and they are included here -- but also covered are some of the lesser-known but equally treacherous individuals. For example, Duncan Scott-Ford, a Scottish merchant seaman, who sold information to the Germans about convoy movements; Theodore Schurch, born in London of Swiss parents, who joined the British Army but agreed to work for Italian intelligence; and Harold Cole, who infiltrated Allied escape lines in Europe and betrayed between 100 and 150 British and French agents to the Germans.
