PDF Dead Drop: PDF

by Jeremy Duns

In August 1960, a Soviet colonel called Oleg Penkovsky tried to make
contact with the West. His first attempt was to approach two American
students in Moscow. He handed them a bulky envelope and pleaded with
them to deliver it to the American embassy. Inside was an offer to work
as a 'soldier-warrior' for the free world. MI6 and the CIA ran Penkovsky
jointly, in an operation that ran through the showdown over Berlin and
the Cuban Missile Crisis. He provided crucial intelligence, including
photographs of rocket manuals that helped Kennedy end the Cuba crisis
and avert a war. Codenamed HERO, Penkovsky is widely seen as the most
important spy of the Cold War, and the CIA-MI6 operation, run as the
world stood on the brink of nuclear destruction, has never been
bettered. But how exactly did the Russians detect Penkovsky, and why did
they let him continue his contact with his handlers for months
afterwards? Could it be that the whole Cuban Missile Crisis was part of a
Soviet deception operation - and has another betrayal hidden in plain
sight all these years? Thrilling, evocative and hugely controversial,
Dead Drop blows apart the myths surrounding one of the Cold War's
greatest spy operations.
