'East German Foreign Intelligence solidly documents what a dedicated and determined intelligence service, free of the constraints of democratic society, can accomplish. As a work of research and analysis, the book is a benchmark for historians and intelligence professionals.' - Hayden Peake, Studies in Intelligence'The book is fascinating and informative, and it does help us to separate the reality of the HVA from the melodramatic LeCarre-tinged myth. Indeed, it shows that this reality may even make a better story.' - German Studies Review
