Car Tape Deck

The Case:

A man thinks he may have inherited the first commercially produced automobile tape player in the U.S.

Even more fascinating is the possibility that the technology to produce this early tape player was stolen from the Nazis in a secret mission in the closing days of World War II.

Join History Detectives for a great American road trip, as they head to Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia to examine the clandestine world of high technology espionage and shed light on the little known story of how the U.S. gained the industrial upper hand following World War II.
