Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating
Quantity Available: 1

Book Description: Simon & Schuster, New York, NY, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Rubbed dust jacket worn on spine ends and corners. Small piece of label still attached to front dust jacket. Page block shows soiling and foxing. From dust jacket: 'Shadow Warrior' is the autobiography of Felix Rodriguez, one of the most extraordinary agents in the history of the CIA. Now he has come in from the cold to tell his remarkable story. As a high-school student from Cuba, Rodriguez joined the anti-Castro movement at age 17. He was infiltrated into Cuba six weeks before the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, and was one of the only 15 of the original group of 35 infiltrators who escaped after the invasion failed. In 1967, as a CIA advisor to the Bolivian Army, he helped to capture Che Guevara. In Vietnam, Rodriguez advised and often led an elite antiguerrilla force, the Provisional Reconnaissance Units, which had some of the highest success rates against Communist insurgents. In 1985 he took his skills in counterinsurgency to Central America, where he helped the government of El Salvador in its battle against Communist guerrillas. While there, Rodriguez was asked by Lt. Col. Oliver North to assist in resupplying the Contras. 'Shadow Warrior' has all of the advantage of a Le Carre or Deighton novel - except that every word is true.' Price intact on dust flap.

Christopher Andrew and Vasili Mitrokhin
Bookseller: Steve's Bookshelves LLC (Hartville, OH, U.S.A.)
Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating
Quantity Available: 1

Book Description: Basic Books, Inc., New York, NY, 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Ex-Library with typical stampings and labels; however the book appears unread and is in very good condition. Pages are clean and binding is tight. The dust jacket is protected in mylar with typical shelf wear and labels. First edition with publisher's original suggested price intact ($32.50). From dust jacket: 'The Sword and the Shield gives us by far the most complete picture we have ever had of the KGB and its operations in the United States and Europe. It is based on an unprecedented, top-secret archive described by the FBI as "the most complete and extensive intelligence ever achieved from any source." The presence of this archive in the West represents a catastrophic hemorrhage of the KGB's secrets and reveals for the first time the full extent of its worldwide network. In 1972 the British Secret Intelligence Service exfiltrated from Russia a defector whose presence in the West has remained secret until the publication of this book. Vasili Mitrokhin worked for almost thirty years in the foreign intelligence archives of the KGB. In 1972 he was responsible for moving the entire archives, including all of the files on the KGB's deep-cover operatives, to new headquarters just outside Moscow. Unknown to the Soviets, Mitrokhin spent over a decade making notes and transcripts of these highly classified files which, at enormous personal risk, he smuggled daily out of the archives and kept beneath his dacha floor. Christopher Andrew has had exclusive access to both Mitrokhin and his archive, which is now in Britain. Supplementing this treasure trove of KGB secrets with extensive research in other archives, published and unpublished sources, he has written an extraordinary book which forces us to acknowledge that there was indeed an enemy - and that he was very much in our midst.' Includes five Appendices: KGB Chairmen 1917-26, Head of Foreign Intelligence 1920-99, The Organization of the KGB, The Organization of the KGB First Chief Directorate, The Organization of a KGB Residency. Abbreviations and Acronyms. The Evolution of The KGB 1917-1991. Inventory #22-001449-3348. Bookseller Inventory # 001449

Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating
Quantity Available: 1

Book Description: Pocket Books, New York, NY, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. From dust jacket: 'Based on years of extensive research and interviews with key official and unofficial sources, 'Inside The CIA' is the most probing and dramatic investigation of today's CIA. Ronald Kessler examines the Agency from the perspectives of its prominent directors and veteran officers and through the eyes of its significant crirics. The result is the first in-depth, unbiased account of the CIA - its core operations, its abject failures and resounding successes. Kessler traces the CIA's evolution over the last fifteen years, during peace and war. Based on interviews with two active Director's of Central Intelligence and three former DCI's, 'Inside the CIA' shows how they worked with - and against - the Agency's staff to shape American foreign policy. Kessler clearly describes the CIA's most secret departments and tracks the rapid flow of intelligence from undercover spies in the field and stations around the world to Agency headquarters in Langley, Virginia - and directly to the President.' Neat underlining and margin notes in pencil by a former intelligence professional. Signed by the author. Inventory #29-001436-3397. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 001436

Richard L. Holm
Bookseller: Steve's Bookshelves LLC (Hartville, OH, U.S.A.)
Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating
Quantity Available: 1

Book Description: St. Ermin's Press, London, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. From dust jacket: 'Dick Holm joined the CIA in the 1960's and rose rapidly through the ranks to become Bureau Chief in Paris, eventually receiving the Distinguished Intelligence Medal, the CIA's highest reward. The first posting in his eventful and action-packed career was to Laos, where he served in the CIA's 'Secret War' against the Communists in the lead-up to the Vietnam War. He was then sent to the Congo and suffered near fatal injuries after a plane crash in remote jungle. Healed by local tribesmen, his horrific burns treated with snake oil and tree bark, he subsequently spent two years in a United States hospital undergoing extensive surgery and skin grafts. It was a grueling time, during which he regained his sight and the use of his hands, then fell in love with and married the widow of a close friend and fellow colleague. Dick Holm worked in Hong Kong and Brussels as well as Paris, and was instrumental in anti-terrorism operations during Carlos the Jackal's campaign of terror. Intensely patriotic, he has served under thirteen CIA directors and has firm views on policies - past and present, national and international - which, ultimately, determine how, where and why the CIA works. In this fascinating memoir, Dick Holm not only gives an inside view of life as a CIA officer, but poignantly describes his appalling injuries after the plane crash in the Congo and his amazing fight for survival'. Photos and two maps. Dust jacket protected in mylar. Inventory #12-001305-3236. Bookseller Inventory # 001305
