CHM007- From MLB To OSS, Moe Berg Part 2

Moe Berg finally joined the OSS after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 6 1941.

Moe worked as an analyst for the OSS until his chance to go to Europe and work in the field came when The Manhattan

Project needed a spy to assist in Operation Alsos. Moe did clandestine work to track and discover the Nazis progress on the Atomic Bomb.

His work and missions including the possible assassination of a world famous physicist had a direct impact on the success of The Manhattan Project and the outcome of World War 2.
