    Surprise, Kill, Vanish

    Great read if you like spy history, specifically the paramilitary arm of the CIA, green berets, etc.

    Very well researched accounts of everything from the assassination of Nazi generals to covert ops in Laos. Fascinating first hand accounts of everything from the execution of Che Guerra to heartbreaking missions involving tactical nukes in North Korea.

    Bonus: Learn how we specifically trained Ho Chi Minh, Sadam Hussein, and more!

    Highly recommend.

    I used to read quite a bit, but not much lately and I just ordered this book. I really like spy stuff and this sounds like it will be a good read.

    Agent Sonya: The Spy Next Door, Sisters and Spies: The True Story of WWII Special Agents Eileen and Jacqueline Nearne and Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don't Know

    I just read both of these. The incompetence of the british and to certain extent allied spy masters during WWII and the Cold War blew my mind. It's amazing we "won"
