In early 1943 Gunter Fleiss, Adolf Hitler’s master spy, learned that scientists at Los Alamos had selected a remote site off the coast of North Carolina to test America’s first atomic bomb. Hitler decided to dispatch his trusted agent SS Col. Max Reiner to North Carolina in an attempt to infiltrate the test site. However the Fuhrer found himself hooked on the horns of an espionage dilemma. First Col. Reiner couldn’t tell an atomic bomb from an oversized watermelon. The mission called for an atomic physicist, no less. Second, no one had asked the young atomic physicist Hans Richter whether he wanted to take a U-boat ride on this field trip to North Carolina. With the possibility of being captured by the American FBI. And being hanged. Meet The Unwilling Spy.

The book is organized in Folklore Units. Each Folklore Unit has Context and may have one or more Metacontexts with citations of works of great philosophers or writers; hence, the title of the book is Metafolklore. The book covers the life of immigrants from the USSR in the U.S., remembers life in Russia, and gradually concentrates on the modus operandi of the KGB, FBI, CIA, NYPD, NSA, ECHELON, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, Al, and ISI. It covers frontiers of legal theory of surveillance. What distinguishes this book is the intensely personal account of the events and issues.

An award-winning and highly distinguished documentary film-maker, Leslie Woodhead has written a funny, sad and highly atmospheric memoir of what it was like to be hurled into maturity amidst the peculiar circumstances of the Cold War. In the spring of 1956, like two million other men of his generation, the eighteen-year old Leslie Woodhead received a summons to serve Her Majesty. Charting his progress from the austerity of post-war Halifax, via comically bleak RAF training camps and the grim, isolated Joint Services School for Linguistics, My Life As A Spy takes us finally to Berlin and the front line of the Cold War. In the ruins of a city gripped by espionage and paranoia, Leslie Woodhead discovered adulthood and his vocation as an observer and documenter of people. A slice of Cold War history and a poignant tale of how our lives can be formed by events and experiences we barely comprehend at the time. '[a] delightfully irreverent memoir. . . Woodhead's memories exude a wonderful sense of nostalgia for a world of lost innocence that to anyone over 60 is instantly recognisable' Sunday Times
I bowled again, the unwilling spy. 'It's never enough,' my father said, 'whatever I do.' The voices subsided, and I went on bowling. I worked hard at school, finishing near the top of MY LIFE AS A SPY.

With Hitler at the height of his power, Carl von Menen, suave, wealthy and aristocratic, a high flying servant of the German Foreign Office, lives a duplicitous and dangerous life – he abhors the Nazis and wants to kill Hitler! But his vision of seeing a Nazi-free Germany shrinks to despair, when he is unexpectedly assigned to Argentina to keep a watchful eye on the emerging United Officers Group (GOU), a pro-Nazi/Fascist faction of military officers led by the aspiring Juan Domingo Peron. In Buenos Aires, von Menen is sucked into a cauldron of treachery, deceit and revolution, heightened by his secret ideology, the far-reaching threat of the Gestapo and his clandestine dealings with the seemingly obliging Colonel Filipe Vidal, a man who emerges with a devious and sinister agenda: a plot to side-line Peron and seize power for himself. But Vidal needs arms and his coercive key to getting them is the life of the woman von Menen loves, the dazzling Maria Gomez. Scheming his way back to Europe, von Menen finds Berlin in ruins, the Gestapo in overdrive, and a merciless Red Army charging towards Germany with only one thing in mind – vengeance! Gambling his own survival against certain execution, he contrives to convince a desperate and weakening Nazi hierarchy that Vidal has a pro-Nazi deal on offer that not even Peron can equal. Hitler finally gives his approval, but the scent of treachery is in the air and the Gestapo is watching. What follows is a bold and daring plan to rob the Reichsbank, a perilous journey by U-boat to the South Atlantic and a maelstrom of heart-stopping events back in Buenos Aires… James Remmer explores the covert operations of WWII with reference to the early years of Peron and to real events of the war years. The book offers a unique perspective into WWII and will appeal to fans of historical fiction, especially those interested in undercover operations during the Second World War.

THE MOST NOBLE OF SPIRITS RISE FROM THE MOST HUMBLE OF HEARTS He was unaware they searched for him. After all, he was an ordinary man, a simple pianist who herded goats and played Chopin high in the Pyrenees Mountains. He was also unaware that deep within his brilliant hands, dormant and undisturbed, was an ability to kill. In the darkest days of World War II, a man who plays Chopin so magnificently the angels weep, begins a reluctant journey into spyhood. Garcia Quinones, virtuoso pianist famous throughout Europe, is forced into the dark world of espionage by Britain's MI6 where he must learn to lie, deceive and murder. "I am a pianist, not a spy," he cries. Under duress, Garcia is groomed for the lead role in a daring plot to dupe the Germans. His teacher, one of Britain's most revered spymasters, must ensure Garcia fools the Germans as brilliantly as he plays the piano. Can the pianist's delicate fingers learn to curl around a 9mm pistol and squeeze the trigger before he faces the Gestapo and the Reichsfuhrer of Nazi Germany. "The Unwilling Spy" is the timeless story of exceptional men who strive to battle tyranny and evil in times of war. When the soul of an artist is forced to confront the demons of political oppression, the results are unforgettable.

This book is a fictionalized diary. This three-volume edition of the book has parallel texts both in English and in Russian; English text is in black, Russian text is in red. The book is written in a very unconventional way and describes an unconventional experience. It is about the collision of cultures, which any new immigrant may experience. But it is also about the life of a particular kind of newcomer - a highly ideological, even idealistic, political refugee from a country that is the main geopolitical adversary of America. The narrative is a mixture brewed from the high-minded expectations of a former Soviet dissident contrasted with the world of "folklore" where insinuation is reality and with the daily prejudices and outright spy mania found in the various strata of American society. At the same time, this book has an aspect of a folklore study. Elements of folklore - folklore units - are analyzed both from the point of view of an immediate meaning and from the point of view of a broader meaning. The immediate and broader meaning is uncovered through interpretation in contexts. In the process of this interpretation the book navigates in contexts on two levels: (immediate) Contexts and (broader) Metacontexts. These Contexts and Metacontexts are built with the use of citations, which exemplify folklore in the world of ideas (hence the title of this work, Metafolklore). Books used as sources for these citations are primarily those of literature, philosophy, and law, but also of other areas of human knowledge. The Metacontexts are presented in three distinct perspectives: anthropological, psychological, and humanistic. Plus there are Metacontexts representing a dialogue of the author with his daughters who give the perspective of second generation immigrants. Strictly speaking, this book falls in between fiction and nonfiction; not accidently it is called "a fictionalized diary." But even so it leans towards nonfiction in the genre of ethnographic surrealism. The book covers the life of immigrants from the U.S.S.R. in the U.S., remembers life in Russia, describes personal experience of a dissident in the Soviet Union and then, after emigration from the Soviet Union, with the Western intelligence and counter-intelligence organizations. It gradually concentrates on the modus operandi of the Committee for State Security (KGB), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), New York Police Department (NYPD), National Security Agency (NSA), ECHELON, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), Department of Homeland Security, MI5 (British counterintelligence), Mossad, Saudi Intelligence, and ISI (Pakistani military intelligence). It covers frontiers of legal theory of surveillance and of citizen's rights versus such surveillance and how modern surveillance can lead to electronic totalitarianism. What distinguishes this book is the intensely personal account of the events and issues. Because of its coverage of surveillance in America this book has run into certain resistance from some part of the public in the United States. An archetypically hostile reaction to this book was expressed by William Askins, ex CIA Clandestine Service Senior Operations Officer: "This book is chock full of secrets. The public doesn't need to know this stuff and it should be suppressed!" These words, representing usual criticism from certain circles to this kind of literature, were written about one of the sources, which is cited in the book; actually "Metafolklore" has much more "secret" information and the opposition to the cumulative effect of this book is more acute.
This book is a fictionalized diary. This three-volume edition of the book has parallel texts both in English and in Russian; English text is in black, Russian text is in red. Volume 1 is devoted to Early Years.
