About this Item

450 pages. Venona was a 37-year U.S. and allied intelligence program to decipher, read and exploit several thousand Soviet intelligence messages collected in the 1940s. The program revealed to Western analysts that Stalin's agents had succeeded in stealing plans for the atomic bomb, and the extent of Soviet intelligence penetration of the West. The Venona program succeeded in breaking up many of the Soviet espionage networks in the U.S. and other countries and was declassified in July 1995. This book was issued in conjunction with an October 1996 conference on Venona for scholars and historians, co-sponsored by the CIA and the NSA. It includes US Government documents outlining the U.S. response to Soviet espionage, and 99 of the most significant and revealing Soviet messages translated by Venona. Clean.
