Description
In 1949, a newly minted branch of the CIA embarked on the agency's first paramilitary operation, hoping to roll back the Iron Curtain. An elaborate plan was coordinated with British intelligence to foment popular rebellion and detach Albania, the weakest of the Soviet satellites in Europe, from Moscow’s orbit; the operation was a dismal failure and was shut down by 1954. Some blamed British spy Kim Philby for tipping off the Communists, while the Soviets themselves trumpeted the prowess of their secret police. Albanian-born Albert Lulushi documents the range of factors that led to the failure, from inexperienced CIA case officers to agency rivalries and conflicted anti-communist factions.
