Overview

Praise for The Venona Secrets

“The Venona Secrets . . . is the most authoritative account yet of the hidden mysteries unveiled by the decoding of thousands of secret diplomatic messages between the Soviet Union and its operatives here. . . . It offers the unmatched expertise of Herb Romerstein, a walking encyclopedia of the history of Communism and counterintelligence.”
—Eric Fettmann, New York Post

“The Venona Secrets contains much. . . that will shock those too young to remember these ancient battles. And for those of us who do remember, it is comforting evidence that the truth, however belatedly, has a way of coming out.”
—William Rusher, syndicated columnist

“The Venona Secrets is a breathtaking exposé.”
—Robert Novak, The Weekly Standard

“Masterful research and interpretation of once-secret federal documents by authors Herbert Romerstein and Eric Breindel . . .”
—Bill Hoffmann, New York Post
