Publisher Description

Reminding readers that the Cold War was actually a time of hot wars, spying, murders, defections, shoot downs of reconnaissance aircraft, and a space race, the authors uncover some unknown or long-forgotten incidents of the period. Among them, the murder of a U.S. naval attache on the Orient Express, an East German soldier s leap to the West in Berlin, two CIA officers twenty years in a Chinese prison, Cpt. Bert Mizusawa s rescue under fire of a Soviet defector in the Korean DMZ, a North Korean pilot s defection in a MiG fighter, the USS Forrestal fire, and the Soviets putting the first man in space.
