Plot Synopsis

In the lead-up to World War II, French and German intelligence operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle on the espionage battlefield in Warsaw, and Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier, a decorated war hero of the 1914 war, is the new military attache at the French embassy, where he finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna Skarbek, a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest. SPIES OF WARSAW spans the decade from 1933 to 1943, as the Germans slowly consolidate their political stranglehold on Europe, showing the potency and importance of espionage and pure intelligence in the run up to the war. BBC America aired the U.S. premiere of this two-part program on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 9pm ET, and showed the conclusion one week later.
