Guest: Jerome M. O’Connor, Historian, Journalist, Author of “The Hidden Places of World War II” During WWII, a luxurious three-story mansion on the outskirts of London was used to house dozens of high-ranking German generals captured in combat. Why should they be given such luxurious accommodations given the way they were treating Allied prisoners of war – not to mention the atrocities of the death camps? Well it wasn’t about pampering the generals. It was about spying on them. Everything in the mansion was wired to listen in on the generals.
