The years 1945-61 were a golden age of Western intelligence collection from spies, defectors, and refugees. This book examines the methods of spying and intelligence collection in East and West Germany and assesses the importance of border security to the East German Communist state, the impact of intelligence on the arms race, and the aggressive dimension of the US Government's policy of containment.
