Description
Rhodes Scholar, patriot, and descendent of one of America's most distinguished families, Duncan Chaplin Lee was also possibly the best-placed mole ever to infiltrate U.S. intelligence operations. As a chief aide to the head of the OSS, Lee was well placed to pass sensitive information to his Soviet handlers, including the likely timeframe of the D-Day invasion and the names of some of his peers who were under investigation for suspected communist affiliations. As Mark Bradley documents in this history, however, Lee was eventually betrayed, and J. Edgar Hoover began a 13-year crusade to prove his guilt.

"A vivid portrait of one of the early Cold War's most important but least studied Soviet moles. Bradley does an excellent job plumbing the depths of Duncan Lee's ideological defection."—Randall B. Woods

"[Bradley] tells the fascinating story of this complicated spy's life.... Bradley provides extensive background information regarding the events of the time and all the characters involved, painting a vivid picture of the world in which Lee operated. Readers interested in Cold War history or real-life spy dramas will enjoy this thoroughly researched and highly readable work."—Library Journal
