Istanbul Intriguesby Barry Rubin
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This is the story of Istanbul--but also of Turkey, the Balkans, and the eastern Mediterranean--during World War II, based on extensive interviews and the use of archives, especially those of the OSS, which I was the first to see for this region. The book is written as a cross between a scholarly work and a real-life thriller.

A factual spycraft account and primer and the resulting impact on Allies, Enemies, Neutral Countries. "Intrigues" brings together the people, plotters, heroes and scoundrels whose machinations and missions alter the course of war and peace in surprising and often unpredictable ways.
Good story on the early days of the OSS as well as an aspect of the war in Istanbul that is not talked about as often.
