Turnout in Zurich. Secret fights without rules in the Alps: versions, riddles, discrepancies
Switzerland has long since served as a fighting ring
for intelligence services around the world – the United States, Israel, the
Near East, France and other European states. Unexpected deaths and inexplicable
events behind the scenes afford a landscape where the imagination can run rife.
The death of a London-based Soviet specialist in his hotel bath in Switzerland
is still a mystery to this day. And how did the “Dora” group, under legendary
Soviet spy, Sándor Radó, manage to relay invaluable information about the
Wehrmacht during the difficult days of war? The mysterious “Lucy” Rudolf
Roessler, who blatantly infringed every rule and canon in the spy’s code of
conduct, took that page of history away with his own passing.
The archives are still tight-lipped about how the
young Soviet intelligence service wanted to recruit Hitler, sending Churchill’s
cousin, a beauty in London’s high society, to carry out the task. How? More
about that in the book. And what about the comical incident when a Swiss
technician burned newspapers instead of sketches, and sold the sketches of a
French fighter plane to Israel?
You can find out about this and much more in the
investigation of Switzerland’s secret labyrinths, Somerset Maugham, an
intelligence officer in revolutionary Petrograd, who swapped the role of
cloak-and-dagger knight for the writer’s plume, Graham Greene, how the elusive
Kim Philby became a double agent for Hitler’s counter-espionage and the FBI.
