Overview:

Dark Invasion: 1915: Germany's Secret War and the Hunt for the First Terrorist Cell in America : <p>In the summer of 1914, New York City Police captain Tom Tunney is preoccupied by Manhattan&#39;s raging gang rivalries and has little idea that, halfway around the world, a much more ominous threat to the city is brewing. As Germany teeters on the brink of war, its ambassador to the United States is given instructions to find and finance a team of undercover saboteurs who can bring America to its knees before it has a chance to enter the conflict on the side of the Allies.</p> <p>Overwhelmed and undermatched, Tunney&#39;s small squad of cops was the David to Germany&#39;s Goliath, the operatives of which included military officers, a germ warfare expert, a gifted Harvard professor, a bomb technician, and a document forger. As explosions leveled munitions plants and destroyed cargo ships, particularly in and around New York City, panicked officials talked about rogue activists and anarchists - but it was Tunney who suspected that these incidents were part of something bigger and became determined to bring down the culprits.</p> <p>Through meticulous research - and enhanced by more than fifty images sourced from global archives - Blum deftly reconstructs an enthralling, vividly detailed saga of subterfuge, bravery, and the birth of Homeland Security.</p>
