Congo, July 10, 1960. Just days after the country has declared its independence from its former colonial master, Belgium, Larry Devlin, newly appointed CIA Station Chief, finds himself at the wrong end of a revolver as militiamen play Russian roulette, Congo-style, with him. Congo was a key Cold War battlefield in a war that for CIA officers of Devlin's generation had to be fought, vigorously, by all means possible. He met every significant political figure in one of the world's hottest zones. This is a classic political memoir from a master spy who lived in wildly dramatic times. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
