In the province of Cádiz one of the most important and unknown battles of the Second World War was fought. It had nothing to do with those of other fronts. Espionage, sabotage and information traffic were, in this case, the most used weapons. Its strategic location, with Gibraltar and the Strait as a gateway to the Mediterranean, with all that that entailed, led to a peculiar duel, in which secret operations and intrigues were the protagonists. Even Hitler would later recognize that not invading the Rock cost him the war.

It's time to meet Dr. Pirata, the Queen of Hearts, Rosalinda Fox, the Carthusian Nazi, the Black Prince, the real 007, diplomats given to the cause, suicide saboteurs, the Hotel Reina Cristina and its secret tunnels , the bell of the Graf Spee, the armored car of Hitler, Villa Carmela, the human torpedoes ... Stories of love, hate and revenge. Pieces, all, of a chess board in which a game was played that was very close to changing the course of the contest. All of them real. And all with a common characteristic: they took place in the south of the south, in the end of the country that more closely watches Africa and that shelters the access to the Mediterranean.
