Spies is a video series dedicated to the secret wars that have raged through the past decades. Through archival footage, interviews with key players, and excerpts from unpublished memoirs and recently declassified sources, this series attempts to put a human face on the missions of men and women, who, until now, have lurked in the shadows. Material from the archives of the CIA, FBI, KGB, and Mossad are used extensively. "Dynasty of Spies" profiles the formation of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) under "Wild Bill" Donovan, while "Behind Enemy Lines" discusses the missions of the OSS, whose agents were trained in espionage, sabotage, and other covert activities.
