Packed with over 20 case studies and hundreds of photographs, SPIES is an exhilarating journey into the cloak-and-dagger reality of spy technology and the spies themselves. Book jacket.
Often portrayed as a glamorous James Bond-world of excitement and intrigue, spying is in fact a dangerous, complex and potentially deadly game of "winner take all." SPIES is a fascinating look at the real world of the spy: the secret successes and public failures; the stunning brinkmanship and deadly outcomes. It reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of famous and not-so-famous spies, betrayals and acts of bravery in the history of espionage.
