The story of North America's first secret agent training school, the role it played in defeating the Axis during World War II, and in the world of modern espionage - investigated through the first archaeological dig of the site; demonstrations of its training techniques; first person accounts of those who trained; and dramatic recreation of their exploits behind enemy lines. Dubbed the school of "mayhem and murder", Camp X and the schools it spawned, trained over 25,000 secret agents during the war. The investigation uncovers the camp's secret agent training manual and the role it played in forging the world of espionage, including the foundation of the CIA. Ian Fleming claimed to have trained there and the notorious Soviet mole, Kim Philby, wrote its secret training manual.
