A revelation ... and I THOUGHT that I understood things !
on 26 May 2014
THis is a remarkable revelation. As the son of the British Military Attache in Finland 1966 - 68 I thought I understood better than most what was going on. We were aware that the KGB and GRU had oppos in FInland and that some were Right At The Top ... but it was fascinating to see JUST HOW deeply things were planned and carried out. As for other places ... I have also read The Mitrokhin Archives and Gordievsky, Grigorenko and other books by analysts who come from outside the former USSR ... But THIS book is a revelation because he was right in the middle of the planning and execution of the disinformaziya campaign and exposes its importance in analysing just about everything. The influence of Moscow behind the PLO, Arafat and terrorism helps ME to understand the situation in Israel far more than I did. In the light of the present ( May 2014 ) situation in the Ukraine ; it is especially interesting. I STRONGLY recommend this if you want to understand what's being planned and is happening behind the scenes.
