Shortly after the war, the strategic Services Unit wrote a classified history of the OSS during World War II.
As the OSS pieced together the Operation Bernhard network, it made plans to apprehend those participants not already in custody.
The OSS judged that “Spitz is primarily responsible for the success of this mission.”
As an initial act of good faith, Schwend agreed to turn over to the OSS all of his “hidden valuables.”
By then, both Spitz and Schwend had clearly demonstrated their value to OSS.
