Descripción Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1992. Hardcover. First edition. First printing [stated]. xvi, [2], 488, 4] p. Maps. Transliteration of Russian Names. Author's Note. Notes. Index. A nonfiction le Carre that offers an unprecedented glimpse at the real drama of how a spy is "run"--and run to ground--this is the never before told story of Oleg Penkovsky, the highest ranking Soviet official to ever cooperate with the West. Written with exclusive access to transcripts of Penkovsky's meetings with the CIA. From Wikipedia: "Oleg Vladimirovich Penkovsky; born April 23, 1919 in Vladikavkaz, North Ossetia, Soviet Russia; died May 16, 1963 in the Soviet Union), codenamed HERO, was a colonel with Soviet military intelligence (GRU) during the late 1950s and early 1960s who informed the United Kingdom and the United States about the Soviet emplacement of missiles in Cuba.There are two very different opinions about Oleg Penkovsky. While the majority of observers seem to feel that he was a genuine defector as described in The Penkovsky Papers, Peter Wright, a scientist with MI5 in Britain, was convinced that Penkovskiy was a Soviet plant designed to lead the United States to the conclusion that the USSR's intercontinental missile capabilities were much less developed than they actually were. The defector account says Penkovsky approached American students on the Moskvoretsky Bridge in Moscow in July 1960 and gave them a package, which was delivered to the Central Intelligence Agency. CIA officers delayed in contacting him because they believed they were under constant surveillance. Penkovsky eventually persuaded the British spy Greville Wynne to arrange a meeting with two American and two British intelligence officers during a visit to London in 1961. Wynne became one of his couriers. In his autobiography, Wynne says that he was carefully developed by British intelligence over many years with the specific task of making contact with Penkovsky. The CIA regretted their earlier mistake, but were included by the British and they shared future information. For the following eighteen months, Penkovsky supplied a tremendous amount of information to his British Secret Intelligence Service handlers in Moscow, Ruari and Janet Chisholm, and to CIA and SIS contacts during his permitted trips abroad. Most significantly, he was responsible for arming President John F. Kennedy with the information that the Soviet nuclear arsenal was much smaller than previously thought, that the Soviet fueling systems were not fully operational, and that the Soviet guidance systems were not yet functional. The view of Peter Wright is quite different. Wright was struck by the fact that, unlike Igor Gouzenko and other earlier defectors, Penkovskiy did not reveal the names of any illegal Soviet agents in the West but confined himself to organizational detail, much of which was known already. Wright also noted that some of the documents were originals which in his opinion would not have been so easily taken from their sources. Wright is scathing in his condemnation of the leadership of British intelligence throughout nearly the whole Cold War period. He felt that the Soviet agents Philby, Maclean, Burgess and Blunt could all have been identified more quickly using the scientific methods that he proposed. In Wright's view, British intelligence leaders became even more paralyzed when Philby and the others defected to the Soviet Union. British intelligence became so fearful of another fiasco that they avoided taking risks. Aware of this sensitivity, Wright says, the Soviets planted Penkovsky to buoy up the sagging fortunes of their ineffective and therefore highly useful counterparts in British intelligence. Wright says, "When I first wrote my Penkovsky analysis Maurice Oldfield (later Chief of MI6 in the 1970s), who played a key role in the Penkovsky case as Chief of Station in Washington, told me: 'You've got a long row to hoe with this one, Peter, there's a lot of K's [knighthoods] and Gongs [medals] riding high on the back of Penkovsky, ' he said, referring to the.
