The profiles of Americans accused of betraying their country read like good spy stories—except all the people were real, their stories true. Features Benedict Arnold, John Brown, Alger Hiss, Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the John Walker family, Edward Lee Howard, and Aldrich Ames.

“An interesting overview that profiles 12 Americans who were accused of and tried for treason. . . . Gives readers food for thought by presenting possible motives and reasons for their actions.”
