FIF 233 Moles, Sleeper Cells and Dead Drops: Intelligence During the Cold War

Course Description

During the Cold War, the first military confrontation between the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. would almost certainly have been their last battle and very possibly the end of all life on earth.  So it was essential to find alternate methods of waging the Cold War.  Enter intelligence which became vital for both sides during the Cold War.  We will explore the main ways that intelligence was used, and sometimes abused, during the Cold War, including atomic espionage, covert operations, double agents, sleeper cells and the image of the Cold War Spy.
