      PDF/EPUB Robert Littell Ð PDF/EPUB The Company PDF/EPUB Ê Ð mdeparenpar.co company pdf, The Company ePUBThis doorstopper of a novel about 900 pages is an excellent 40 year overview of the growth of the US Intelligence structure as seen through the stories of a few men and women who started with the beginnings of the CIA after WWII and grew with the Company to hold positions of leadership The method of using factual history as the backdrop for many of the plotlines was intrinsic to keeping the interest level high while Littell flipped through the decades I'd be remiss in not saying that at times say after 600 pages and still having a third of the book to go I didn't think hmm couldn't just wrap it up here but the continual growth in the direction the company took through the cold war and foreshadowing the beginnings of the fundamentalist ismamic terrorism that is now considered our greatest enemy called for the scope that was presented One further point after a brief

      PDF/EPUB Robert Littell Ð PDF/EPUB The Company PDF/EPUB Ê Ð mdeparenpar.co company pdf, The Company ePUBI am not a big fan of spy novels in the same way that I don't tend to favour genre fiction However having read a shining review for this book in The Economist which is not a normally frivolous publication I picked it up and read it from cover to cover in a few days The book is a compulsive page turner The story is nothing less than that of the CIA from its inception in 1950 to the end of the Cold War in 1992 seen through the lives of several CIA and KGB operatives The story is rigorously researched and the period details seem to be perfectly portrayed I am a big fan of contemporary history and did not find any significant flaws in the book They follow our boys mostly boys in this book no big surprise there from Berlin in 1950 to Budapest in 1956 to Havana in 1960 to Washington and Moscow in 1974 to Afghanistan in 1983 to Moscow in 1991 with a brief co
