Dušan "Duško" Popov OBE (1912-1981) was a Serbian double agent working for MI5 during WWII under the code name "Tricycle" and the Abwehr under the code name "Ivan". He was reportedly Ian Fleming's model for James Bond. Adventurer, playboy, lover - his exploits are legend. Here in vivid, razor-sharp prose, Popov details his life as agent for the British while ostensibly working for the Nazis. Popov entered into the twilight world of espionage when he realized that only a concerted effort on the part of all freedom-loving men could help stop the menace of Fascism. Posing as an admirer of the Nazis, Popov managed to gain their confidence until he was a top spy. He passed on German information to British Intelligence. British General Petrie rated him as the man who single-handedly held up 7 to 15 German divisions during the opening of the second front. Popov's value to the British as a double-agent was not, however, appreciated by the FBI. When Popov was sent to the U.S. by the Germans, his welcome was less then cordial. Dusko's story of the advance notice of the intended bombing of Pearl Harbor, as well as his delivery of the micro-dot to the FBI, will galvanize the reader. His extreme courage and intelligence made Popov the most important double-agent in the Second World War. Again and again he risked his life with the Germans even though his "cover" might have been blown at any moment. He risked torture and death to establish German confidence in him so he could work for the destruction of the Third Reich. His wartime mission completed, Dusk married an attractive woman and fathered three sons and lived happily with his family in France.
