What makes a great WWII Spy?  In his newly published book “MacArthur’s Spies,” Peter Eisner describes three Americans who risked their lives to aid Allied Forces during World War II in Japanese-occupied Philippines. General Douglas MacArthur, Commander of the U.S. Army Forces in the Far East, understood the geopolitical significance of the Philippines and America’s role in the preservation of peace in the Pacific. Eisner, a foreign correspondent & researcher, based his book on true stories of successful underground counter-intelligence maneuvers.
