Spies Beneath Berlin: The Extraordinary Story of Operation Stopwatch/Gold: The CIA's Tunnel Under the Russian Sector of Cold War Berlin
David Stafford (au)
Tells the fascinating account of one of the most intriguing cover operations of the Cold War: Operation Stopwatch/Gold (OSG). Called “one of the most valuable & daring projects ever undertaken,” OSG was carried out from a secret tunnel under the Russian sector of Cold War Berlin as, for more than a year, the CIA tuned into the German Red Army intelligence. This was an almost impossible trick as, apart from the technical wizardry needed, any noise or vibration could have given the game away. An added layer of complexity comes from the fact that OSG was a joint CIA/MI6 project. Whether or not OSG was a success has been a point of contention over the years. Stafford reveals the thrillingly complex story of this operation. B&W illustrations.
