By MI6 Staff
MI6 Competition: MI6 has teamed up with publisher Casemate UK to give lucky readers the chance to win copies of "The Cold War Spy Pocket Manual".
With material from the CIA, MI5 and MI6, the KGB, the STASI, and beyond, The Cold War Spy Pocket Manual brings together directives that informed nuclear espionage, assassinations, interrogations, and the 'turning' of agents. It reveals their impact on the Suez Crisis, the "Cambridge Five" the Cuban Missile Crisis and more.
In its pages you will find a dossier of British techniques for interrogating spies (including "The Technique of Blow Hot-Blow Cold" and "The Legend of Cell Fourteen"), a guide to secret recognition written by a stage magician for the CIA (including flower in the lapel, wearing a Band Aid and tying shoelaces in a particular pattern), outlandishly detailed protocols for handling a dead drop, a document detailing some of the elaborate protocols put in place to detect potential traitors, and a CIA plot to lace Fidel Castro's cigars with hallucinogens, explosives or even a depilatory substance to make his beard fall out (and so undermine his revolutionary macho image).
Books Must Be Won: To enter for your chance to win a copy of the book, simply answer the question below along with your name, city and country to [email protected]
