It is the winner of 'best picture' at the academy awards, The Baftas and The Golden Globes Tehran, November 1979. Militant students stormed the American embassy and held sixty Americans captive for a gruelling 444 days. But until now the CIA has never revealed the twist to the Iran Hostage Crisis: six Americans escaped. The escape plot was run by Antonio Mendez, head of the CIA's extraction team and a master of disguise. Mendez came up with an idea so daring and potentially foolish that it seemed destined for Hollywood ...and indeed it was. He invented a fake sci-fi film called 'Argo' (from the actual name of the CIA mission, a reference to Jason and the Argonauts). After announcing the production to the movie industry, Mendez put together a team of real 1970s Hollywood actors, directors and producers - along with covert CIA officers1242ocn812030594book20120.15Mendez, Antonio JArgo : hoe de CIA en Hollywood samenwerkten in de spectaculairste reddingsoperatie ooitVerslag van een voormalig CIA-agent over de geheime operatie waarbij zes Amerikaanse diplomaten in 1979 uit Iran werden gered721ocn025663503book19910.93Optical multiple access network (OMAN) for Advanced Processing Satellite applications381ocn156737870book20020.17Owen, DavidHidden secretsHistoryHistory of espionage around the world including descriptions of the technology used82ocn824826873book20120.14Mendez, Antonio JArgo : cómo la CIA y Hollywood llevaron a cabo el rescate más audaz de la historiaHistory"Teherán, 4 de noviembre de 1979.

Agents, double agents and multiple agents are vital to waging war successfully and they often help nations avoid war altogether. Spies have affected the outcomes of wars and crucial battles throughout history. Spies exposes the secret successes and public failures of intelligence gathering and operations from ancient times to the current war on terrorism. Using easy-to-follow illustrated case studies and sidebar features, Spies reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of famous spies, international secrets, betrayals and bravery in the long history of spying.The book describes in exciting detail:- The art of spy tradecraft- Techniques spies use to gather and send secrets- Devices used to steal state secrets- How agents survive in hostile environments- Whether or not spies like James Bond really exist. Today, sophisticated digital and space-based technology gathers untold amounts of raw data. Yet far from rendering the spy on the ground obsolete, human intelligence is more vital than ever to separate the truth from the deception.

Moscow, 1988. The twilight of the Cold War. The KGB is at its most ruthless, and has now indisputably gained the upper hand over the CIA in the intelligence war. But no one knows how. Ten CIA agents and double-agents have gone missing in the last three years. They have either been executed or they are unaccounted for. At Langley, several theories circulate as to how the KGB seems suddenly to have become telepathic, predicting the CIA's every move. Some blame the defection of Edward Lee Howard three years before, and suspect that more high-placed moles will be unearthed. Others speculate that the KGB's surveillance successes have been heightened by the invention of an invisible electromagnetic powder that allows them to keep tabs on anyone who touches it: spy dust. CIA officers Tony Mendez and Jonna Goeser come together to head up a team of technical wizards and operational specialists, determined to solve the mystery that threatens to overshadow the Cold War's final act. Working against known and unknown hostile forces, as well as some unfriendly elements within the CIA, they devise controversial new operational methods and techniques to foil the KGB, and show the extraordinary lengths to which U.S. intelligence is willing to go to protect a source, then rescue him when his world starts to collapse. At the same time, Tony and Jonna find themselves falling deeply in love. During a fascinating odyssey that began in Indochina fifteen years before and ends in a breathtakingly daring operation in the heart of the Kremlin's Palace of Congresses, Spy Dust catapults the reader from the Hindu Kush to Hollywood, from Havana to Moscow, but cannot truly conclude until its protagonists are safely wedded in rural Maryland. At a time when the public has more questions than ever about the role of our intelligence services, and what is being done in America's name, Spy Dust both reassures us and gives us hope for the espionage battles of the future+-+370379892573010ocn809846898com20120.13Mendez, Antonio JArgo how the CIA and Hollywood pulled off the most audacious rescue in historyHistoryThis book relates the true account of the 1979 rescue of six American hostages from Iran.
