Worth Fighting For: My Life As A World War Ii Spy


For over 60 years, Frank Weishaupt kept a secret from his family and friends. Then at a class reunion in 2009, he was asked a simple question - What did you do during World War II? Frank replied, I was a spy. Take a trip back in time with a young man thrust into responsibility and maturity by loyalty to his country in a time of war. Born in 1926 the son of German immigrants, Frank Weishaupt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where, at the age of sixteen, he was recruited into America's brand new Office of Special Services (OSS) for the lone purpose of spying on German military activities. Officially enlisted in the United States Navy, Weishaupt trained in secret during his high school years, studying the French and German landscape and learning hand-to-hand-combat. When he finally deployed in Europe, Weishaupt joined the Normandy invasion of France - not with a gun overhead, but a bicycle. Peddling across the European countryside, he infiltrated and blended in; playing the role of a wealthy, Swiss student. Armed with his knowledge of the French, Swiss, and German languages, he would engage the enemy on a daily basis, deliver vital troop movement information, smoke out a double agent in his own OSS ranks, and save himself from the Gestapo. Little did Weishaupt know he would be relaying his findings to some of the Allied forces top brass Montgomery, Bradley, and none other than General George S. Patton, Jr. himself. Journey with Weishaupt as he weaves his tale of recruitment, training and intrigue, dancing with princesses and wooing beautiful European women, aiding Jews to safe haven, and his search to find himself during times of personal struggle.For the first time, Weishaupt breaks his silence, openly sharing his experiences and details his covert OSS operations during war; paying tribute to those he left behind, the family who never knew his secret, and the fallen comrades he would never see again.WORTH FIGHTING FOR will have you cheering for Weishaupt as you retrace the footsteps of one young patriot who secretly made a difference.
