Dark Invasion 1915: Germany’s Secret War and the Hunt for the First Terrorist Cell in America
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
What happens when German spies collaborate to unleash a campaign of terror upon America at the start of World War I?
In Dark Invasion: 1915, a New York City policeman uncovers a German plot to sabotage ships, factories, and even J.P Morgan himself. Howard Blum tells a gripping, true story of espionage and terror on American soil during World War I and the Irish cop who hunted for the conspirators among a population of more than 8 million Germans.
Blum is the author of The New York Times bestseller and Edgar Award-winning American Lightning. He is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and has twice been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting.
Co-presented by the Kansas City Public Library and the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.
