This is an auction for KGB: THE INSIDE STORY OF ITS FOREIGN OPERATIONS FROM LENIN TO GORBACHEV, by Christopher Andrew and Oleg Gordievsky.

This copy has been SIGNED by Oleg Gordievsky.

“FIVE STARS!!! Oleg Gordievsky is the most remarkable and productive Soviet defector of recent times. When Gordievsky made his escape from Moscow in 1985, he departed with a gold mine of information on the KGB's operations, personnel, and organizational structure. Because Gordievsky was involved in researching histories of several different divisions at KGB headquarters, he possessed a unique knowledge of the organization's operations.”

“This is the most comprehensive book yet to be published on the structure and history of the KGB. It was partly written by Oleg Gordievsky - a man who spent around thirty years within KGB. It covers all Russian and USSR secret services and gives details of the many assassinations carried out by the KGB and its predecessors. Good coverage is given of the life of the best known spies and analysises the "active measures", "wet affairs", agent penetration and other actions carried out by KGB.”

“Written in co-operation with Oleg Gordievsky this book tells the grim story of the birth and development of the KGB. No punches are pulled by the writers. With tales of countless executions, show trials, assassinations and infiltration into the Western secret services the KGB is painted as all powerful. The book is well written and easy to read, crammed full of facts and figures, dates and names, and highly recommended.”
