Richard M. Helms: Building the Tradecraft


Best known for guiding CIA during some of the most critical years of the Cold War, Helms worked in Secret Intelligence (SI) for the OSS and ran operatives out of Central Europe and Scandinavia. Though he did not deploy overseas until 1945, he made his way to Germany and found himself in one of Hitler's abandoned bunkers on V-E Day.
