Mayday: Eisenhower, Khrushchev, and the U-2 Affair
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Reflecting the growing revisionist inter est in the Eisenhower presidency, MAYDAY is a comprehensive account of the CIA's U-2 program, which be came public knowledge only after the downing of Francis Gary Powers over Soviet airspace in 1960. Though a bit long, MAYDAY is an engaging, often exciting narrative that relies heavily on manuscript sources and interviews with key survivors of the Eisenhower ad ministration. Beschloss presents a bal anced picture and never fails to weigh the public debacle of the Powers inci dent against the virtual intelligence bo nanza produced by the previous four years of U-2 flights. His portraits of both Khrushchev and Eisenhower are excellent, as are briefer sketches of oth er key figures. A solid work certain to spark further interest in the diplomacy of the Cold War. Suitable for most aca demic and larger public libraries. Jo seph W. Constance, Jr., Georgia State Univ. Lib., Atlanta
