Powers seems the epitome of the spy in his very interesting chronicle. The story he writes is immensely personal, filled at various times with pride, fears, and misgivings. . . .
Francis Gary Powers served as a pilot in the U.S. Air Force and completed 27 U-2 photographic reconnaissance missions for the CIA, including several overflights of the Soviet Union, until shot down in 1960. Upon his return to the United States in 1962, he flew the U-2 as an engineering test pilot for Lockheed Aircraft. Powers died in a helicopter crash in 1977.
