This book is the irreverent and hilarious memoir of a young Army lieutenant (Roger Hall) who was a member of Wild Bill Donovan’s American spy organization the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) during WWII.

Hall’s story would have made a wonderful movie comedy in the 1950’s starring Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant!
