Did Greville Wynne really exfiltrate a GRU defector from Odessa? Was the frogman Buster Crabb abducted during a mission in Portsmouth harbor? Did the KGB run a close-guarded training facility, as described by J. Bernard Hutton in School for Spies, which was modeled on a typical town in the American mid-west, so agents could be acclimatized to a non-Soviet environment?
With the help of witnesses with first-hand experience, and recently declassified documents, Nigel West answers these and other fascinating questions from a time when secrecy and suspicion allowed the truth to be concealed.
