This series looks at the secret campaigns and operations of the major conflicts of the past 100 years.
Part of a six book series that investigates the hidden world of spies, double agents, assassins and saboteurs and how their actions affected the course of the world’s major conflicts.
In warfare, the battles grab most of the attention. But there is also a secret history to every war. In this series we look at this hidden world of spies, double agents, assassins, and saboteurs, and learn how their actions affected the course of the world's most devastating conflicts.
This book explores the secrets of the Cold War. The superpowers never fought openly on a battlefield. Instead, they attacked one another by underhand means-spying, propaganda, secret operations, and guerrilla wars.
