Summary
December, 1981--the CIA learns that the Polish government has cut telephone communications with the West and closed the Polish border. The agency's leaders quickly inform President Ronald Reagan at Camp David. Within hours, Prime Minister Wojciech Jaruzelski has appeared on Polish national television to announce the establishment of martial law. A new era in Cold War politics has begun: Washington and Moscow are on a collision course. In this gripping narrative history, Seth G. Jones reveals the little-known story of the CIA's subsequent operations in Poland, which produced a landmark victory for democracy
Summary
Traces the Soviet-backed Polish government's 1981 efforts to impose martial law to suppress anti-communist activities, documenting the lesser-known role of the CIA's QRHELPFUL intelligence program and Eastern Europe's dissident groups in establishing a free and democratic Poland
