Iva Toguri (Tokyo Rose) and Mildred Gillars (Axis Sally) were native born American citizens. During World War II however, both women joined forces with America’s enemies. From Tokyo and Berlin, Tokyo Rose and Asix Sally broadcast defeatist radio propaganda aimed at American GIs. “You Americans,” they warned “are losing the war.” After the war, both women were returned to the United States to stand trial for treason and possible execution.
