Summary
  • Three American agents enter Germany during World War II on a mission to stop the shipment of arms from Switzerland and to sabotage the German atomic bomb project
  • "The Swiss Account is an explosive inside look at Switzerland's financing of the Third Reich, and it gives us a Switzerland none of us have known. Due to its neutrality, Switzerland is the spy capital of Europe, but by 1945 our chief spymaster, Allen Dulles, is faced with a foe as ruthless as Himmler's SS - the Swiss banking establishment. Their vaults bulge with Nazi gold, the bloody plunder of Hitler's tyranny. With it the Germans are buying high-tech military hardware to create an atom bomb." "Dulles' job is to halt this profiteering and he dispatches three young recruits - Nancy Reichman, a beautiful American attache, Peter Burckhardt, Swiss heir to major banking interests, and Felicitas Burckhardt, a brilliant physicist - on a daring, top-secret mission to Bavaria." "They have three goals: to stop the shipments of Swiss arms to Germany, to sabotage the German atom bomb, and against all odds, to stay alive."--BOOK JACKET
