not yet rated|write a review
Interdoc was established in 1963 by Western intelligence services as a multinational effort to coordinate an anti-communist offensive. Based in The Hague in the Netherlands, Interdoc sought to link up with allies across Western Europe, North America and beyond to become the central point through which anti-communism – ranging from propaganda to covert action - could be organised. Drawing on exclusive sources, never-before-released material, and the memories of its participants, this book charts Interdoc's remarkable campaign, the people and ideas that lay behind it, and its rise and fall during the Cold War.
