Fine but with gift inscription on half-title page; in very good dust jacket. The story of one of the most fascinating men ever to play major league baseball. Moe Berg was a Princeton scholar, fluent in foreign languages, whose baseball career began with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1923; playing for the Washington Senators in the early 1930s. Berg was recruited by the government and, as part of an All-Star team which toured Japan in 1934, secured and smuggled back pictures of Tokyo which were to play a key role in Allied Intelligence in WWII. Retiring from the diamond after 1939, Berg joined the O.S.S. (precursor to the C.I.A. ), conducting several covert operations in Europe during the war. Berg remained a man of mystery (much of it of his own design)until his death in 1972. Still one of the most highly sought-after baseball-related biographies.
As a baseball fan and a military intelligence specialist I had heard
various story about Moe Berg and the book put it all together in a very
concise easily read volume. I think a lot of young people would enjoy
reading the story as an inspiration to what hard work and dedication
can do for you. A little genius helps as well.
