Operation Sunrise was a covert mission executed near the close of the Second World War in Europe by America's major intelligence organisation, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). In an effort to arrange the surrender of Axis forces in northern Italy, the OSS chief in Berlin, Allen Dulles, met secretly with a number of German officials headed by the SS and police chief of northern Italy, Wolff, in March ' April 1945. The talks between the SS and the OSS led to bitter controversy between the Western Powers and the Soviet Union but Dulles finally got his surrender just five days before the general capitulation at Rheims brought the complete demise of the Third Reich.
