Allen Dulles : master of spies by James Srodes( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Allen Dulles took American spying from the back alleys of Europe to the forefront of American foreign policy as Director of Central Intelligence under Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy. His life spanned the American century: from his diplomatic service at America's embassy in Vienna during World War I to his running intelligence operations in the Middle East, Latin America, and Southeast Asia." "In Allen Dulles: Master of Spies, bestselling author James Srodes explodes the myths spun by Kennedy defenders over what happened at the Bay of Pigs, using recently declassified documents and exclusive interviews with key Kennedy aides; reveals how Dulles plotted to kill Hitler - and how his espionage campaign against the Fuhrer started before World War II; highlights the Dulles family's role in unmasking Alger Hiss as a Soviet spy; and explores how Dulles, and his brother, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, guided American foreign policy during the crisis points of the Cold War." "Fifteen years in the making - and written with the full cooperation of the Dulles family and numerous previously untapped sources - Allen Dulles: Master of Spies is more than a biography, it is the dramatic story of how America became a world power through the life of its premier spy."--Jacket

Spies in Palestine : love, betrayal, and the heroic life of Sarah Aaronsohn by James Srodes( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sarah Aaronsohn and her siblings were born as part of the first wave of Jewish immigrants who fled the pogroms of Russia and Eastern Europe in the 1880s, settling in the province of Syria-Palestine. By the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Sarah's home village of Zichron Ya'akov brought prosperity to their lands between the Mediterranean coast and the Mount Carmel range. But when the Ottoman Turkish Empire sided with kaiser Wilhelm II and the other Central Powers in WWI, the Jewish settlements faced cruel oppressions. This book explores how the Aaronsohns, one of the most prominent families in the province, came to commit themselves and their comrades to the Allied side and how they formed the NILI espionage organization to spy against the Turkish Arm. Late in the war, in 1917, Sarah assumed command of the spy network as the group's penetration of the Turkish army reached a critical juncture. -- Adapted from back cover
