An important, absorbing, and frequently chilling, examination of the secret government program that brought hundreds of German scientists, doctors and their families - despite their political beliefs and wartime experiments - to America after WWII. An ethically questionable program that was undertaken to prevent the scientists from being recruited by the USSR. Did their work help us win the Cold War or prolong it? ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
