By publishing The Double Cross System in 1974, J C Masterman cracked the Official Secrets Act door, allowing the greatest spy ever, Dusko Popov, to publish his memoirs two years later Because much was still classified, Popov changed many names In addition, since he had no access to still classified MI5 and FBI files, much of his information is dischronologized or he mixed up names understandable writing from memory events that occurred 30 years prior As I point out in my book on Popov INTO THE LION S MOUTH The True Story of Dusko Popov WWII Spy, Patriot, and the Real Life Inspiration for James Bond, Berkley, June 7, 2016 , Dusko made up the name of the man who killed his best friend, Johnny Jebsen Popov wrote that his name was Walter Salzer, which is fictitious Both I and Popov s son believe Dusko made the name up because he Dusko killed the Nazi days after the war had ended My book reveals the three possible men who would have killed Jebsen, and the man I believe Popov killed And who said nonfiction was boring A fascinating and true story from World War II.

At one point Popov is sent to the U.
S to set up a double cross system like the one he established with the British, and is thoroughly not only ignored and disdained by Hoover, but his work is actively suppressed Much like reading about Hoover in Taylor Branch s Parting the Waters, I found myself infuriated with the man Yet again I wanted to reach through time and strangle him, which is a rare reaction for me.
The ending of Spy Counterspy is nothing short of intense, disturbing, and sobering, showcasing some of the best and worst of humanity Knowing that this really happened, and is no mere story, makes it intimately powerful.
I read this book in 7th grade, I thinkthat was a long time agoand I still remember lots of details of it It s an autobiography of a Polish man, who was both a spy for the British and the Germans during WWII Supposedly, Dusko Popov was the basis for Ian Fleming s James Bond, and I could believe it One of the parts that stuck to me was all the information sent to the US through J Edgar Hoover whose description by Popov is amazing regarding Pearl Harbor The book is told in a novel type form, so it makes it much readable and enjoyable I liked this book so much, several years ago, I found a copy online and bought it it s been years out of print, but I couldn t find my copy Still want to get back to reading it again.
Interesting and detailed memoir of a WWII double agent This book filled in many blank spots in my WWII history knowledge Reinforces how the German Abwehr, under Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, was not 100% behind Hitler and the Nazi regime The Abwehr was less sophisticated than Great Britain s MI5 and MI6.
I found a used copy of this book in excellent shape for only 35 it s been out of print for years Highly recommended for WWII history buffs.
