Description
Two men stood before the nation and made accusations that would capture America's attention. One man, Whittaker Chambers was an admitted ex-Communist spy. He claimed the other man, Alger Hiss, had also been a Communist spy. Hiss, a well-respected man who had worked for the United States government, claimed that Chambers was a liar. The author outlines this fascinating case that became a symbol of the Cold War struggles between the United States and the Soviet Union.
