The true story of German secret agents engaged in a campaign of subversion and terror in the United States before and during World War I.
Many believe that World War I was only fought "over there," as the popular 1917 song goes, in the trenches and muddy battlefields of Northern France and Belgium--they are wrong.
It may be hard to imagine that there was ever a time in American history when terrorist and criminal bombings were as commonplace as today's daily acts of gang violence.
