Christopher  Nehring - The 77 Greatest Myths of Espionage


Fascinating facts and incredible stories from the world of the secret services

Where is the capital of espionage? Why do clairvoyants work for the CIA? And are cats any good as spies?

Christopher Nehring has examined 77 myths from the world of espionage – absurd ones, entertaining ones, ones thought to be impossible – and surprises us over and over again with the fact that the truth is even more fantastic than myth could ever be.

"Nehring is the first to straighten out myths, fables and misconceptions about espionage and secret services. The normal reader, historians – and yes, even intelligence professionals – will benefit from reading it." Benjamin B. Fischer, long-time CIA chief historian

"Christopher Nehring is a true expert on the secret services. He unmasks myths we have become fond of and writes with precision and entertainment."

Georg Mascolo, Head of the Investigative Research Association of WDR, NDR & SZ (06.06.2019)
