'Here, expounded by the supreme technician, is the story of a great secret service: how it is paid and recruited, how it selects and achieves its objectives, how it deals with its allies and its enemies. The service is General Gehlen's life, and he describes it with a fidelity and frankness that can never have been equalled.
Many books are unusual; here is one, at least, which is literally unique. For a variety of reasons, General Gehlen did not feel able to include a great deal of highly important material in the version of his Memoirs published in Germany.
Here, for the first time, is the full and fascinating story.'
