VIRTUAL TALK: “The Walls Have Ears” with Helen Fry
January 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$10.00
THE WALLS HAVE EARS
The Greatest Intelligence Operations of World War II
Not all wars are won with weapons. Some are won by spies and stings. During World War II, the British turned stately homes like Trent Park in North London and the Latimer House and Wilton Park in Buckinghamshire into prisons for high-ranking German officers and commanders. After giving them “phony” interrogations, they gave them luxury accommodations. They even wined and dined them at exclusive clubs. Above all, they encouraged them to talk. And talk they did—never suspecting the walls had ears. While the prisoners talked on one side of the wall; listeners recorded and transcribed their private conversations on the other side. The prisoners not only dropped their guard; they dropped Hitler’s most closely guarded secrets, including details of new German technology. In this astonishing history, Helen Fry uncovers the inner workings of the bugging operation, one of the least-known, but greatest deceptions of the Second World War.
