Today, 17 Nov 15, Espionage During WWII


Recommended Posts

You are right I couldn't find anything specific to the war relating to espionage to call for a special day.  A search of the internet, I know not the most reliable, indicated the following related to WWII on this date:


1937:  Lord Halifax flies to Germany to enter into talks and beginning of appeasement

1938:  Italy implements its own version of the anti Jewish laws

1939:  U Boat sinks passenger ship

1944:  Nazi's raid dutch polders (earthen dams to drain wetlands) in NE Holland


oh yes, one more thing:   this date in 1973 Nixon told press editors:  "I am not a crook".

Oh yes...one more thought however coincidental...maybe the espionage films are reminding us of the terrors of "fear" as imposed by the Nazis...something currently underway with terrorist attacks and threats..just a thought.  

Good answer. Terrorists, such as the ETA-rras who tried without success to break the Basque Country away from Spain, first act like spies in order to be able to set up their death devices.
