Note: Blackstock lists the author as Ronald Seth instead of Chartham as is on the book.
Contains more than twenty accounts of post-World War II espionage cases or incidents with the traditional closing notes on “Soviet Espionage” and “Soviet Spy Technique.” Draws the moralizing conclusion: “Spies do not cause wars; they themselves are the producer of war and the fear of war. Our objective should be to rid the world, not of one particular weapon, but of the fear of war.”
