In a post-World War II secret operation, more than 1,600 German scientists were recruited and re-settled in the United States -- despite the fact that some had been Nazi Party members, SS officers and war criminals. Author and journalist Annie Jacobsen recounts the story of this decades-long program in, "Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America."
