Topic: The Effect of Espionage on the Outcome of Pearl Harbor


Hey I have a project on this, so does anybody have any information about the key players(Spies) on the attack Pearl Harbor. Information like the spies that gave information about the formation of the ships and planes to the Japanese about Pearl Harbor. Overall my topic is The Effect of Espionage on the Outcome of Pearl Harbor so if anyone has any information please reply.

Thanks

Did they even have the technology to connect a ship's radio to a domestic telephone?

Maybe Reggie White was the source for this rumor.

I would search the Japanese-American sites and the Navy Historical Museum.

They had subs in the area, and the Japanese had a government office in Hawaii with a large staff.

And here is a map found in a crashed Japanese plane that may have included information he gathered:
