Spy for Germany
Spy for Germany is a 1956 West German movie directed by Werner Klingler. In 1944, the Second World War is already coming to an end, even if no one in Germany officially wants to know about it. However, the fact that the Americans are supposed to be building an atomic bomb is already a cause for concern. If this were to be used, all would be lost, everyone agrees. And so the spy Erich Gimpel is sent to the USA together with the U.S. deserter Billy Cole to find out the state of affairs. While Gimpel goes about his work, thanks in part to some connections, he meets and falls in love with Joan Kenneth. But it is a love that is not under a lucky star because from the very beginning everything that can go wrong in the operation does.
The following weapons were used in the film Spy for Germany:
