Frederic H Martini: Betrayed: Secrecy, Lies and Consequences

Betrayed is the true story of two men on opposing sides in WWII, one a sergeant in the US Air Corps and the other a Nazi rocket engineer. The sergeant was shot down, betrayed, and imprisoned in Buchenwald, while the engineer, an SS-Major, became a national hero of the Third Reich. After the war, the records of both men were classified Top Secret and concealed by threats, denials, and misrepresentations. The US government refuted the sergeant’s accurate account, while promoting a fabricated history for the engineer, Dr. Wernher von Braun, who became as famous in the US as he had been in Nazi Germany. Betrayed demonstrates how an unconstrained military intelligence operation disrupted the lives of American ex-POWs in the name of “National Security.”
