Hello everyone,
I wanted to share my new book with the community. It is called, Magicians at War - How Espionage and Deceit Changed History. It takes an in-depth look at magicians of past who have used their skill during times of war and for espionage. I even interviewed a former director of the CIA about the agency using magicians as contractors. It will be available from most magic dealers soon but is available now at Amazon and at www.MagiciansAtWar.com.
Here is what is covered in the book...

Jasper Maskelyne
Making a Naval cruiser appear, the spy stuff, his next trick… move a harbor!, the next task… hide the Suez Canal!, spy craft for the double agent and Maskelyne's fake army!

Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin
Stopping a war with superstition and the chest that changed history!

Harry Houdini
Was Harry a spy and his role as a patriot!

The CIA, the Spy Book and the Magicians
The gadgets, working with the CIA, Project MK-ULTRA and magic to fight the Russians!

Thank you. It is just under 100 pages. It is an easy read full of vignettes between 4 to 10 pages long.
