Bristling with suspense, it details the undercover operations of one of the most ingenious by rings of the century. Headed by Richard Sorge, it transmitted highly secret information from Tokyo to Russia between 1933 and 1941 – an astounding feat in increasingly xenophobic, militaristic, and security-conscious Japan. Gordon Prange brings to life the members of the ring, the double agents, the victims and chips, the diplomats and statesman." -- from the front panel blurb.
