Startling revelations from the OSS, the CIA, and the Nixon White house

Think you know everything there is to know about the OSS, the Cold War, the CIA, and Watergate? Think again. In American Spy, one of the key figures in postwar international and political espionage tells all. Former OSS and CIA operative and White House staffer E. Howard Hunt takes you into the covert designs of Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon:

His involvement in the CIA coup in Guatemala in 1954, the Bay of Pigs invasion, and more
His work with CIA officials such as Allen Dulles and Richard Helms
His friendship with William F. Buckley Jr., whom Hunt brought into the CIA
The amazing steps the CIA took to manipulate the media in America and abroad
The motives behind the break-in at Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office
Why the White House "plumbers" were formed and what they accomplished
The truth behind Operation Gemstone, a series of planned black ops activities against Nixon's political enemies
A minute-by-minute account of the Watergate break-in
Previously unreleased details of the post-Watergate cover-up

Complete with documentation from audiotape transcripts, handwritten notes, and official documents, American Spy is must reading for anyone who is fascinated by real-life spy tales, high-stakes politics, and, of course, Watergate.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:02:51 -0400)

A central figure in the Watergate scandal looks back over his life, from his role as a covert agent during World War II and his career with the CIA to his role in the Watergate break-in and its aftermath.
