A former OSS spy looks back to his training in one of the key intelligence agencies in WWII, his experience in espionage, and his remarkable metamorphosis from boy to man, man to soldier, and soldier to spy. This is the story of Helias Doundoulakis, who became a spy for the Office of Strategic Services during WWII. Rescued by the SOE's Patrick Leigh Fermor, he escaped to Egypt and joined the American army and the OSS. He was moments from death while on his mission in Salonica, Greece, operating his wireless radio in plain view. If captured, he resolved, he would take a poison pill to end his life. Yet he miraculously survived to tell the tale. Hear his riveting account, and learn about the game of life.
