Customer Review

on May 20, 1999
An excellent and accurate rendition of two of the military's most notorious and damaging Cold War spy cases. Colonel Herrington captures in picturesque language the intelligence and counterintelligence environment in then divided Berlin, the indisputed mecca for spies in the 1980s. His telling of the Clyde Conrad and James Hall espionage cases accurately enlightens the reader with first-hand accounts of the complexities, resource intensity, frustrations, and heart-sinking setbacks that preceded these spectacular and historical cases. The readership then saw only the outcome; Colonel Herrington shares in intricate detail how they got there. In today's counterintelligence times when purpose often takes a back seat to process, bureaucracy, and petty politics, today's intelligence leaders need to learn from the times and cases chronicled so vividly in this book--and ask themselves if they could pull off such complex activities in modern times. Having had the privilege of playing a small part, however obscure, in the making of this book, I thank the author and publisher for making it a reality. I can think of no finer tribute to those of us who were fortunate to serve in so historic an era. Kelly V. Denton
