James Bond may be fictional, but the Ian Fleming’s classic stories sometimes had a lot in common with real life incidences of espionage. This book is a brief history of one of the most fascinating periods of in intelligence gathering: The Cold War. It was a period of greed, betrayal, politics, and revenge--and it's all covered in the pages that follow.
The book begins by looking at one of the most notorious spying rings to ever operate: The Cambridge Five; it continues with a short examination of the Russian security agency: Active Measures; from there it will look at the U2 spy plane incident; next the book looks into the history of code breaking and the VENONA Project; lastly, book will look at espionage in the contemporary world and the Cold War's influence on it. An appendix of famous spies is also included in the book.
