Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Moe Berg parachuted into Yugoslavia before his Heisenberg mission. The Yugoslavia mission was to determine which partisan group the Allies should back. Berg's report said that the group led by Tito was the strongest, and his report encouraged Allied leadership to back Tito. Tito ended up after the war becoming the dictator of Yugoslavia. None of this was shown in the movie, though it did portray him working a desk studying the Balkan region, which included Yugoslavia. See more »
