GREAT BOOK! GIVES DETAILED INFORMATION. ORDER THIS BOOK!
The book was very interesting. Kolbe was a very courageous individual, and it's interesting to hear about Dulles and the preceding organization to the CIA. However, the book is too long and drags unnecessarily at times. If it were about 3/4 the current length and cut down to the necessary details for the story/history to piece together, it'd be a 4 or 5 star.
Excellent representation of the frustrations experienced when bureaucratic red tape prevents the use of good intelligence material. Well written. Fascinating.
Formerly longtime German corespondent for the French newspaper Le Monde and assistant editor in chief at Le Monde des Debats, Lucas Delattre now works for the Council of Europe.
