Spies Of Warsaw
French and German intelligence operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle on the espionage battlefield in the years leading up to the Second World War.
At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-François Mercier (Tennant), a decorated war hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw.
At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest.
