Hope and utopian dreams, he returned to a nation in ruins, and was eventually ordered to join East Germany's nascent foreign intelligence service. Wolf's work was so impressive that before he turned thirty he was asked to lead the service. From that point on, East Germany's foreign intelligence operations became the most efficient and effective in the world. Man Without a Face details all of Wolf's major operations, successes, and failures, and illuminates the reality of.
Espionage operations as have few nonfiction works before it. Wolf paints vivid and revealing portraits of Eastern Bloc leaders and captures the frantic rivalry of the Cold War. Wolf tells for the first time the truth about his Romeo agents. He also reveals the real story of Gunter Guillaume, the East German spy who brought down West German chancellor Willy Brandt; East German involvement with terrorist groups; Wolf's adventures in Africa, Latin America, and the United.
States; and the great defectors. He takes us inside the bowels of Stasi headquarters, with its miles of secret files and Wolf at the center, the one man who knew all the secrets. Man Without a Face reads like a classic spy novel, full not only of moral ambiguity and dark psychology but also of high-speed chases, murdered agents, hidden cameras, phony brothels, secret codes, midnight radio transmissions, false identities, triple agents, and all the other trappings of the.
Most fantastic thrillers - except this time the action is real. Not just a gripping autobiography, Markus Wolf's memoir is a deeply honest examination of loyalty, betrayal, and idealism. With this book, "the man without a face" at long last emerges from the shadows and delivers his remarkable and fascinating story.
