A former KGB agent chronicles his life in the Soviet intelligence community, describing in detail the KGB foreign clandestine service. At his Washington debriefing he made certain revelations but refused to be an informer and implicate others, he maintains here. Readers will find he has little of moment to say, in any event, and what he does tell us focuses on his role in Japan recruiting supposedly high-level (unidentified) spies. Primarily, Levchenko's intent in this memoir is to present himself, in crude Cold War rhetoric, as a freedom-loving, religious person.

I really just need closure for the book in my head. It's a really good book and perfect if you're interested in spy stories, the inner workings of the KGB, or if you're looking for insight to what the other side was like during the cold war. постоянная ссылка.

On the Wrong Side book. As a veteran who was on active duty opposing communism during most of Levchenko's career, I found this a compelling memoir from inside the enemy's camp. Everything he describes, from his personal life to his covert life, rings true to all else that I've read on the subjects. It's a miracle that he refused to "drink the koolaid" of the political machine in the Soviet Union. It's another miracle that he survived the defection. They must have been/be most anxious to see him dead.

Comments to eBook On the Wrong Side: My Life in the KGB
Grillador
Very good book about Japan in the Cold War period. Real espionage, not fiction. Author is KGB defector based in Japan during 1970's. Very good read especially if familiar with Japan and fascinated by real events during cat and mouse era of espionage in the Cold War. Personal side of his story is interesting. Enjoyed the book greatly.

Traitors all end up as useless tampons all over the world!

This book is a riveting autobiography of what it is like to live in the Soviet Union and ultimately work for the KGB in Japan. The contrast between Stanislav Levchenko's life in the KGB and in the United States after his departure from his homeland is particularly illuminating. His dedication to educating the West on the methods of the KGB and the risks he takes to do it (he was under a death sentence from the Soviet Union) are inspiring.

This was a great book, true to very heart. It tells a tale of a KGB officer whose life gets turned around, mostly for the worst. It has truth all through the core, to the other side and back again. The words are well put and it really made me think. The story plants such clear pictures of spies, guns, and Russia. It gave me a chill when the author told of his family and how the KGB ruined his life. If you are a James Bond fan, you will love this book!
