Cold War espionage was a nightmare of errors, deceptions, assassinations and treachery. As fascinating as it was lethal, this labyrinthine world is still masked in mystery. A good deal is known and knowable, however, and this encyclopedia offers the latest and most up-to-date information available, drawn from scholarship, memoirs, and journalism. Everybody spied on everybody else during the Cold War. France had agents in the U.S., China had agents in East Germany, Poland had agents in Great Britain, and the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. had agents everywhere - in governments, in industry, in the military, and within each other's, and their own, intelligence agencies. Close to three hundred A-to-Z entries provide a fascinating glimpse into the subterranean world, events, people and operations of the Cold War. Every entry concludes with a bibliography, and is thoroughly cross-referenced. The work also contains an extensive annotated chronology, and is thoroughly indexed.

Captain Robert Nairac was a brilliantly successful undercover operative in the British Army, with a string of intelligence coups in the war against the IRA. But, until this book, the nature of his operations and the story of his betrayal and murder have remained shrouded in mystery. John Parker - author of a bestselling official history of the Special Boat Section - has obtained unprecedented co-operation from very senior Army sources, and from Nairac's friends and family, to reveal the truth behind the secret war in Northern Ireland - and the ferocious rivalry between MI5 and MI6 that contributed to Nairac's death. This book is a tribute to the heroism of Nairac and all those in Northern Ireland who gave their lives in the battle against terrorism. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9781900512756 20160527
