Recent Comments "The Day Khruschev Panicked"
It's unclear from the book cover whether this was intended to be fiction or non-fiction. It turns out to be fiction, which was against my initial expectations. Knowing that, the book is not very engaging and is based on a bit of a strange premise involving anti-matter weapons. Nothing to see here.
What an odd book! Part travelogue, part spy manual, part political debate about Democracy vs Communism, and all speculation about Khrushchev's failed plans to rule world. Mair wrote a series of spy novels after this book was published, but could any part of this tale be true? Will we ever know?
