5.0 étoiles sur 5 Arguably the best book ever written about the CIA 7 juillet 2013
Par Martin Cannon - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Tom Mangold bases this exciting, well-crafted account not on newsclippings and surmise but on dozens of insider interviews. These interviews must have been authorized from "on high," so it is clear that the Agency had turned against Angleton, or at least had decided to clean up the mess he had left. At the same time, Mangold does not tell the full story. One cannot expect him to do so while maintaining access to all of those sources. For example, there is ample evidence that Angleton ran his own assassination squad. Mangold doesn't tell the story of Angleton's (probable) theft of J. Edgar Hoover's files, as told in Curt Gentry's biography of Hoover. And Mangold doesn't really emphasize the fact that Angleton's "fundamenalist" group included a lot of people outside the Agency. Still, for anyone interested in researching the most devious and fascinating of the founding CIA members -- someone whose paranoia was so destructive that he was eventually accused (wrongly) of being a KGB asset himself -- this book is essential.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a bit of a surprise 21 février 2012
Par Ron in Western Maryland - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was expecting a book about James Jesus Angleton to be more of a chronological narrative of his life and career and to have something in it that explained some positives about the man/legend. I was quite surprised to read of one negative expose after another, listing and explaining Mr. Angleton's screwups while head of counterintelligence with the CIA and the damage he caused while in that position. I knew he had a big reputation and the book lists him as a master spy catcher, which if you read the book is an exercise in sarcasm at best. I am near the end of the book and have yet to read anything that would justify giving him that title. Even if he was chief of CI and not a KGB agent he did more damage to the CIA than if he was a KGB asset. At least according to the author. Mr. Mangold's writing is adequate, but the real test is whether the facts are those . . . facts and the nature of the topic always creates doubts, but I was interested in the time, history and information on the subject and the book was extremely informative with a huge listing of notes in the back and some in the chapters. A good read.

This was one take on JJA that offered some insights not highlighted elsewhere. I found it to be an easy read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extraordinary history 28 juillet 2014
Par James F. Housel - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
An amazing story of idiots at the helm of the CIA. James Angleton did more damage than any Russian mole could have dreamed of. Proof of Barabara Tuchman's thesis in "March of Folly" that we are led by buffoons and misguided idealogues from catastrophe to catastrophe. Exhaustively sourced this book must be the last word on Angleton.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting story about the CIA's first CI chief. 1 janvier 1999
Par - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I read this book several years ago, and found it to be very interesting and worthwhile. James Jesus Angleton was one of the early members of the CIA - a graduate of Yale which, at one time, was one of the primary recruiting grounds for the CIA. Angleton, according to the author, cut a very shadowy figure in an already shadowy world. Some of Mangold's text seems biased against Angleton, such as references to "The Trust" - an early counter intelligence operation created by Feliks Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the Cheka. Angleton placed great emphasis on understanding this old operation. Mangold seems to deride this practice of Angelton's, which I felt was unfairly judgemental. Mangold, however, also describes an operation headed up my Angleton which caused the ruin of some productive CIA officers. All in all, though, the book is very interesting, and manages to submerge the reader into the world of counter intelligence during the cold war era. Counter Intelligence has been described by those who have practiced it as a "Wilderness of mirrors". After reading this book the reader will gain an appreciation, even if only superficial, of how nerve-racking the job could be - not knowing whom you can trust.
