The Cold War conflict between the KGB and CIA was always at the heart of society’s attention, but escalated in the 1980s into what is called by historians, a decade of espionage. The author gives quite a detailed explanation of the CIA’s ‘exploits’ during that period on the territory of our country: techniques used by Americans to recruit our compatriots and the CIA’s tactic of forming conspiratorial contacts with its agents. The author describes in chronological order most KGB operations (successful and unsuccessful) against the American special services from 1970–1990s.
Special attention is given to the operational game Phantom – a unique counterespionage operation carried out by the KGB with a high level of professionalism, according to CIA specialists, which served as inspiration for the 8-part television series “This is where Homeland begins”.
For the first time the reader is presented with both the inner world of the counterespionage unit, specializing in work on American diplomat-intelligence officers, and with the names of colleagues who laid the foundations of contemporary employee development methods in the CIA station in Moscow.
