I enjoyed this book.

It is, first, well-compiled and easy to read, with a pleasing assortment of spy-related tales spanning many time periods, locales, and situations. As a whole, 'Great True Spy Stories' lives up to its name, offering a satisfying snapshot of the world of secret agents and international espionage. More profoundly, however, the book touches on a second, subtler subject: that of mankind's obsession with power. Reading between the lines, one is confronted with the disturbing truth of the matter (which the author makes little to no comment on, interestingly). Again and again, the book illustrates the extraordinary lengths we have gone to manipulate, control, and confuse our enemies (or, as is often the case in this book, our friends, which says something in itself). Much can be learned in this regard, as to force the reader to reflect on our policies and their underlying intentions (or so it did for me, at least). In any case, I benefited from reading this book, on several levels -- more than I expected from a mere collection of spy stories, as it were!

My thanks goes out to this book's authors, subjects, and publisher. I am grateful for your work and service.

If you have read other books about spies in other wars, especially World War II, then some of the stories in this book will be familiar to you. However, these stories often added information I had not read before, as in the case of 'Cicero" in WW II.

I especially enjoyed two stories from the American Revolution. One was about a double-agent who help Washington plan his winter attack on Trenton. Other authors who contend American didn't have a spy system until World War I, need to read these stories. Another story, about a double-agent before World War I, contends he may have been responsible for the downfall of three empires.

My biggest complaint is the author, in his introduction, dismisses most Civil War spy tales as exaggerated or even false. This in the same paragraph in which he mentions Elizabeth van Lew, probably the greatest spy of the Civil War. "Crazy Beth" as she was known to other residents of Richmond, Virginia, was a grand lady who risked her life serving the Union cause. One of her sub-agents was the Confederate coordinator of railroad traffic for Virginia, and she had others in the Confederate "white house," state department and prisons.

The author, Allen Dulles, was the chief OSS agent in Bern during World War II and is a former director of the CIA. While I criticize the above lapse, he has probably forgotten more about spying than I ever knew.
