Spy Counter Spy e-book

by Dusko Popov


Dušan "Duško" Popov OBE (1912-1981) was a Serbian double agent working for MI5 during WWII under the code name "Tricycle" and the Abwehr under the code name "Ivan". He was reportedly Ian Fleming's model for James Bond.

This book is about the top Nazi master spy (and British counter spy) of WW II. "James Bond" faced fictional dangers, Dusko Popov faced the real danger of the Nazi Gestapo. The book lacks an index and a table of contents, but is exceptionally well written. I think this book is British Security Coordination's posthumous revenge on J. Edgar Hoover.

Heard about this book during a James Bond TV marathon and couldn't wait to read it. Fast paced, intriguing true story about a significant time in world history from one person's perspective.
Mr.Twister
I spent a lot time and effort looking for this book, in China's book sites and many libraries, once thought can never be learned dusko popov's life experiences, so now can find this book, I'm very happy and grateful.
Although blemish is inevasible, for the old books.
All in all, in the future I will often purchase in china can't find books through Amazon.
Of course I would like my friends highly recommend『spy counterspy』,and Amazon.

Apart from the trouble of returnig the book I do not understamd what use are you doing to the book without forty (40) pages

This book is about the top Nazi master spy (and British counter spy) of WW II. "James Bond" faced fictional dangers, Dusko Popov faced the real danger of the Nazi Gestapo. The book lacks an index and a table of contents, but is exceptionally well written. I think this book is British Security Coordination's posthumous revenge on J. Edgar Hoover. It first revealed the circumstances of his encounter with Hoover and the Nazi interest in Pearl Harbor.

Chapter 1 tells of his education in Freiburg University, and his arrest by the Gestapo. It was a lesson in terror: his friends pretended to barely know him, professors who previously praised him now slandered him. His father's influence saved him, but he was banned from Germany. DP was not bothered previously; he was a crack shot with the pistol. His method was to use his middle finger on the trigger and his index finger along the barrel as a pointer (p.9).

DP was met by an old friend who offered him a business deal, then recruited him into the Abwehr. DP then talked to a member of the British Embassy, and became a double agent. He had a photographic memory, but it faded away (p.87). Pages 90-91 tell of the code words used to arrange meetings. Nobody should claim that all the German people accepted Hitler willingly; there would have been no Gestapo (p.105).

Chapter 14 tells of his visit to New York. His audience with J. Edgar Hoover showed Hoover to be not up to standards. Pages 196-204 discuss the attack on Pearl Harbor, after DP notified the FBI of Nazi Germany's interest in this target. He believes "the sinister character" of Hoover was responsible for the failure to transmit the warning in the German Questionnaire (between pages 148-149). ("The Day of Deceit" provides another answer.) The result of all this was to wreck his mission (p.216). When he could not get sanitized information, DP lifted material from newspapers!

Chapter 19 tells of the network developed in Yugoslavia by the Abwehr in order to intermix an occasional Nazi spy with smuggled refugees from Yugoslavia. These spies were captured as soon as they reached Britain. Pages 274-5 tell of an incident when a double agent was indiscreet. Immediate plans were made to eliminate the listener. At the last minute they realized the listener was another British agent! The most critical time was the spring of 1944. Would the elaborate deception continue to fool the Germans until the invasion of France? It did, and the diversion helped victory. (His beating of Salzer, followed by his vomiting, tells me that Dusko did finish the job (p.339). [Pagination from hardcover.]
Geny
An outstanding autobiography by the spy known as Tricycle by the British. Very readable telling of his career as a double agent. Better than most spy fiction by miles.
