*A thrilling tale of espionage and intelligence warfare in the postwar era *The origins of cold War intelligence tactics After Germany's surrender in World War II, Jim Milano, a young U.S. army intelligence officer, led a small, independent group of soldiers charged with carrying out some of the first intelligence efforts of the postwar era. Inventing the techniques of cold War espionage for themselves, improvising unorthodox methods, the major and his creative cohorts confounded Soviet forces and created escape routes for defectors. In the pages of Milano's fascinating memoir you'll find a shadowy world populated by spies, prostitutes, refugees, scoundrels, and heroes comes alive.
