Book Talk/Signing: OSS Operation Black Mail

Thursday, March 28, 2019

To mark Women’s History Month, the MacArthur Memorial will host author Ann Todd for a book talk and signing for OSS Operation Black Mail. OSS Operation Black Mail is the story of Elizabeth "Betty" P. McIntosh, who spent eighteen months serving in the Office of Strategic Services in what has been called the "forgotten theater," China-Burma-India. There she met and worked with characters as varied as Julia Child and Ho Chi Minh. Her craft was black propaganda, and her mission was to demoralize the Japanese through prevarication and deceit, and ultimately, convince them to surrender.
