Summary
  • Chronicles the Soviet Union's spying activities in the 1940s, linking Soviet spies with high-ranking figures in U.S. politics, literature, and business and discussing the military and atomic secrets they procured
  • "In 1995 the Venona documents - secret Soviet cable traffic from the 1940s that the United States intercepted and eventually decrypted - finally became available to American historians." "Now, after spending more than five years researching all the available evidence, espionage experts Herbert Romerstein and Eric Breindel reveal the story of the days when Soviet spies ran their fingers through America's atomic-age secrets." "Included in The Venona Secrets are the details of the spying activities that reached from Harry Hopkins in Franklin Roosevelt's White House to Alger Hiss in the State Department to Harry Dexter White in the Treasury."--BOOK JACKET
