Quigley was a World War II OSS agent in Ireland and Rome who posed as an American motion picture industry representative. Charged with intelligence-gathering functions, he was also asked by OSS director William J. Donovan to investigate the possibility of the Vatican mediating the surrender of Japan. That request is the basis for this meager treatment of a minor event. The secret action resulted in no more than two unenthusiastic cables from Japan's Vatican ambassador to Tokyo; they were never even acknowledged, let alone answered.
