From the blurb: "Here, told for the first time, is the remarkable story behind the most explosive espionage case of the twentieth century - a startling book which describes in detail what was actually said at the ill-fated summit conference, reveals the incredible chain of decisions made in Washington after Francis Gary Powers crashed in Russia, and give a full account of the conception, development, and use of the secret U-2 airplane."
Very good condition hardback on navy blue cloth boards, with gilt titles to the spine and a pale blue emblem to the front boards. The boards show only the smallest signs of wear and bumping to the corners. The top edge of the block is coloured a very pale green. The front, and to a lesser extent, the bottom edges of the block are both slightly roughly cut. Internally the book is clean and unmarked save for the aforementioned signature and dedication to the front free endpaper. The original dust jacket is in good to fair condition, displaying signs of fading to the spine, general ageing, wear and tear, and has a large chip taken out of the bottom end of the spine.
