A propos de cet article

375 pages, 8 plates, map, cloth, dj badly frayed otherwise very good. 7th printing. From the dj: For the first time since his release from a Russian prison in 1962, pilot Francis Gary Powers reveals the full story of what actually happened behind the scenes in the most sensational espionage case in Cold War history: the U-2 incident, which wrecked a Summit Conference, gave birth to the credibility gap, and inaugurated a new era in the ancient art of spying. Francis Gary Powers' story, suppressed for eight years, begins with this recruitment by the CIA. It covers his secret training, the pat he played in Operation Overflight, called 'the most successful reconnaissance, espionage project in history.' It gives details never before made public about his ill-fated May 1, 1960, flight over Russia, the 'orange flash' that downed his U-2, and his capture by the Soviets. N° de réf. du libraire 15544
