When he defected to the west in 1992 former Soviet KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin brought with him several boxes full of documents and notes he had smuggled out of Russia, providing the U.S. and Britain with some of the richest details yet on how the KGB operated during the Cold War. Historian Christopher Andrew drew upon those papers for the 1999 bestseller The Sword and the Shield, which dealt with KGB operations in the U.S. and Europe. Now, in a book called The World Was Going Our Way, come details of the KGB's missions in the Third World.
