The Cold War - Spying

The Red Spies in Washington (Coronet Magazine, 1952)

Stalin's deep fear of traitors and moles was not simply confined to the Soviet Union - it spread throughout every branch of his embassies as well. This article pertains to the Soviet spies who worked in Washington - the ones who spied on the Soviet diplomatic corps:

"When a new [diplomat arrives from Moscow] he soon learns that the Ambassador is not the real boss. One outside diplomat who has contacts with the Embassy declares: 'Always, there is someone in the Embassy whom the others fear. They live in terror of him, for he is the real leader... I have seen Soviet officials actually tremble when he comes into the room.'"

British Moles Defect (Quick Magazine, 1951)

On May 19, 1951 two officials of the British Foreign Office were reported as missing; their disappearance raised many eyebrows within the intelligence community. One of the men, Donald MacLean (1913 - 1983) had been working in various trusted positions within the British diplomatic corps since 1934, but his handlers in Moscow called him "Homer". The other Englishman, Guy Burgess (1911 - 1963) began working for the Foreign Office in 1944; the KGB called him "Hicks". The two men were members of a spy ring that would soon be known as "the Cambridge Four" (the other two being Kim Philby and Anthony Blunt. In later years a fifth spy would surface: John Cairncross. All of them were recruited by the Soviets while attending Cambridge University in the 1930s).

Decades would pass before a proper assessment of the damage done to the West as result of their treachery could be fully understood. Collectively the two spies passed along classified information regarding the Manhattan Project, American plutonium reserves, and the agreements that were made between Britain, Canada and the U.S. on the matter of sharing Atomic research data.

The information that was fed to the journalist who wrote the attached article was clearly meant to disguise the fact that the CIA was totally freaking out.

Igor Gouzenko - The Spy Who Started it All (Coronet Magazine, 1953)

On September 5, 1945, N.K.V.D. cipher clerk Igor Gouzenko (1919 – 1982) severed ties with his masters at the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa and high-tailed it over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with tales of extensive Soviet espionage in North America; his claims were backed-up with 109 stolen documents that detailed all manner of Soviet deception and hijinks. This singular action sent shock waves throughout Washington, London, Moscow, and Ottawa - many believe that it was his defection that created the Cold War and altered the course of the Twentieth Century.

In this eight page reminiscence, Gouzenko recalls the events that motivated him, explains how Soviet agents operate in the West and declares his devotion to republican governments over communism.

Post-War Berlin: Cold War Spy Capital (See Magazine, 1948)

Illustrated with black and white images of creepy spies (and their firing squads), this article tells the story of what an international spy hub the occupied city of Berlin was in 1948:

"ESPIONAGE is big business in Berlin and has it's painstaking, pecuniary bureaucracy. It is practiced by small fry (who is willing to procure for you anything from the latest deployment plan of the Red Army to a lock of Hitler's hair) and by big-time operators who deal nonchalantly and lucratively in international secrets."
