"Two weeks after the start of World War II, at a meeting that has remained a secret for more than fifty years, Hitler's top spies and the managers of Nazi Germany's finances approved a bold plot to destroy England: they would contrite British pounds - millions and millions of them - scatter them over the United Kingdom, and destabilize the British economy." "If only, as the Nazis soon discovered, it were that easy. With complex engraving and mysteriously unique paper, the pound notes turned out to be nearly impossible to fake. Frustrated by early failures. The SS put a meticulous engineering officer named Bernhard Krueger in charge of the secret plot, and he swiftly enlisted a group of highly skilled printers and craftsmen in the effort. But there was still a final piece missing: an experienced counterfeiter of the highest caliber." "It turned out that he was easily located: Smolianoff, a Jew, was interned in a concentration camp, barely avoiding extermination by serving as the camp's artist." "What happened next is the stuff of great fiction, except that it's all true."--BOOK JACKET.
