An early reader's guide to KGB spies, introducing Russian espionage history, famous agents such as Oleg Penkovsky, techniques such as dead drops, and the dangers all spies face.
Part of the I Spy series
The world of secret agents and covert operations captures the imagination--but what do we really know about spies? I Spy uncovers basic details of four countries' main espionage agencies, charting their origins, agents' training, and common tools. Famous (or infamous) double agents, moles, and other spies are featured as the text emphasizes that a spy's work is never done. Each book taps the reader's inner sleuth as it presents a "Top-Secret Activity" that can be carried out at home.
