5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific study and analysis., 8 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB (Hardcover)
Published in 1999, this is Christopher Andrew's masterful study and analysis of `The Mitrokhin Archive`.

For sheer in-depth and reliable material on the KGB and it's workings this book is without equal.

The author is an eminent authority on the world of intelligence and espionage and all of his published works are rightly regarded as 'bench-marks' on the subject.

This fat volume is crammed from cover-to-cover with - what amounts to - the entire history of the KGB, it's operatives and it's operations throughout the USA and Europe.

Everything is here, from the well-know names of Blake, Blunt, Burgess, Philby and Maclean to names and events that were hitherto unknown to anyone outside the KGB.

For serious students and casual readers alike, your `spy bookshelf' is incomplete without this remarkable offering from Christopher Andrew.
