Stalin's Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt's Government

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 2012 - History - 294 pages
Until now, many sinister events that transpired in the clash of the world's superpowers at the close of World War II and the ensuing Cold War era have been ignored, distorted, and kept hidden from the public. Through a meticulous examination of primary sources and disclosure of formerly secret records, this riveting account of the widespread infiltration of the federal government by Stalin's "agents of influence" and the damage they inflicted will shock readers. Focusing on the wartime conferences of Teheran and Yalta, journalist M. Stanton Evans and intelligence expert Herbert Romerstein, the former head of the U.S. Office to Counter Soviet Disinformation, draw upon years of research and a meticulous examination of primary sources to trace the vast deception that kept Stalin's henchmen on the federal payroll and sabotaged policy overseas in favor of the Soviet Union.--From publisher description.
