As director of the elite Foreign Counterintelligence Activity, author Stuart Herrington was the U.S. Army's top counterintelligence officer. In this thrilling and informative account he details one of the most damaging and delicate cases of espionage ever committed against the United States. Between 1972 and 1988, thousands of highly classified documents were sold to the Soviet Union and her Warsaw pact surrogates. They were secrets so sensitive that had war broken out in Central Europe, our ability to defend our NATO allies would have been seriously compromised. It was up to Herrington and his team to root out the elusive spy ring responsible for this treachery. An intriguing page-turner with more twists and turns than a spy novel, Traitors Among Us guides us through the intricate spy catcher's world of Cold War Berlin, showing us how the "game" was played when the stakes were as high as national survival.

Stuart Herrington devoted his professional life to fighting the Cold War. In this well-written factual account he documents how dangerous our adversaries were, how much they were helped by traitors among us, and how close we came to being crippled in our ability to defend ourselves. The hard work and determination of the counterintelligence professionals who broke key cases is inspiring. A superb account.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
