Summary
One of the best and complete accounts of United States intelligence activities : what we knew about Soviet military programs, when we knew it, and how. Establishes two facts beyond argument : the Soviets never really caught us by surprise, and we were always ahead. From secret agents to ground stations to air and satellite reconnaissance to a smorgasbord of high-tech electronic surveillance techniques, we find out how the CIA and other intelligence organizations determined what the Russians were up to. Subjects discussed are recruitment of Soviets, use of travelers and attachés, "listening posts", use of airplanes, balloon and U-2 overflights, espionage by submarine and boat, reconnaissance satellites, and pursuit of the Soviet target abroad
