The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War
The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War, Ben Macintyre tells us about the life of Oleg Gordievsky, a Russian spy and the child of KGB agents. Beginning in 1973 he was working secretly for MI6 and played a key role in defusing cold war tensions. His dramatic extraction from Russia kept my heart beating rapidly as I read of his ordeal. Readers interested in international relations, especially espionage, are those most likely to appreciate this gripping story.
