Description
Espionage was a potent factor in the American Revolution, contributing to the planning and outcome of both Colonial and British efforts, and despite the high-profile failure of the Benedict Arnold affair, these intelligence operations generally succeeded. Spycraft was fully embraced by George Washington, for example, who relied on an extensive network and personally designed sophisticated battle plan deceptions and counterintelligence efforts. From dictionary codes, dead drops, musical notation, and ingenious hidden compartments to counterintelligence efforts like the "Black Chambers" for secretly reading correspondence, John Nagy describes the methods used in American and British espionage, and uncovers a number of individuals previously unrecognized as spies.
