Description
 
Leslie Colitt. Author John Le Carre created the wily chief of Soviet intelligence known as Karla. This character was likely modeled on the enigmatic East German Markus Wolf, the most successful Communist spymaster of the Cold War. When the Nazis rose to power, Markus & his family fled Germany for the Soviet Union, where he received his first lessons in clandestine activity from the Comintern. At the end of World War II he returned to the ruins of Berlin, where he hoped to be part of a new Socialist Utopia. Recruited by the Soviet-backed secret police, he quickly moved up the ladder until he had become the most powerful arbiter of secrets in all Germany.
