Did you know that the spy films that you just can’t get much of are actually more or less virtual presentation from real life episodes? Do you know that howsoever it may seem to be too good to be true, spies actually exist? Though Hollywood has glorified the image of spies in the virtual world, spies in the real world rarely get their worth. They risk their life for their country and play the greatest role in gathering valuable information both for peace and war but rarely get acknowledged for their deeds. Every country in the world has its own list of spies who have given much to their nation at the cost of even death and their American counterparts are no less. While talking of American spies the first name that strikes the mind is that of Nathan Hale. He is famously known as the first American spy. Hale voluntarily served as espionage during the Battle of Long Island. Other prominent names include James Armistead Lafayette who became the first African American double agent, Belle Boyd who served during the American civil war. Check this segment and find out in detail about famous American spies who provided top-secret classified information to America about their rival nations and groups.
