Betrayal in Berlin: The True Story of the Cold War’s Most Audacious Espionage Operation
Steve Vogel is author of Betrayal in Berlin: The True Story of the Cold War’s Most Audacious Espionage Operation.
In Betrayal in Berlin, Vogel tells the astonishing true story of the Berlin Tunnel, one of the West’s greatest espionage operations of the Cold War. Vogel also provides the most vivid account to date of George Blake, the dangerous Soviet mole who betrayed the operation, including information from rare interviews the author conducted with Blake himself. This is a narrative so intricate that only now, after more than a half-century, is it possible to piece together the whole story. Vogel’s definitive book is filled with so many layers of deception and double-cross that it’s as thrilling to read as the great spy novels of John le Carré and Len Deighton.
