And John had been armed the entire time. He could hardly wait to tell his KGB friend. Such exchanges were the most hazardous part of his job as a spy. While the Russians felt safe walking the narrow streets of Vienna with John, any personal contact with him inside the United States was considered extremely dangerous. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under Ronald Reagan, had been taking a much harder look at espionage than it had in the past. the American who sold Navy secrets to the Soviets for 18 years in what has been described as one of the most damaging .

John A. the American who sold Navy secrets to the Soviets for 18 years in what has been described as one of the most damaging espionage operations of the Cold War, died Aug. 28 in a federal prison hospital in North Carolina.

Indeed, Brenda had ridden to the dock in a rented Rolls-Royce and was waiting for him in high heels, dark stockings, and a fetching bright red dress with a white linen jacket.

John A. Walker Jr. was a Chief Warrant Officer and communications specialist for the US Navy. In 1985, he was arrested for selling classified secrets to the Soviet Union. Upon his arrest it was revealed that he had been acting as a spy from 1968 to 1985 and that his son, brother, ex-wife, and an acquaintance had also participated in the espionage ring. Altogether, their actions constituted one of the most serious security breaches in US history. In 1990, the New York Times stated, "Mr. Walker provided enough code-data information to alter significantly the balance of power between Russia and the United States." What motivated a career naval officer to become a spy during the height of the Cold War? Over the years, statements by Walker have been reported in various books, newspapers, and other media outlets, but Walker has never told his own story—till now. Walker has decided to make public a private document that he originally wrote for his children to explain his actions. Among the reasons he gives for publishing this work is the following statement: "As I grew older, I came to understand that the wars that had taken place during my entire life were just a symptom of a larger national policy. I watched my uncles and aunt go off to World War II, my brother to Korea, and myself to Vietnam, all of which were waged on foundations of lies. Voltaire said that history is a lie agreed upon by historians. How true. "I cannot classify myself as a visionary or idealist, but just a simple citizen who became angry by the government lies. I did conclude that the US system of government was broken, so I felt justified in breaking some rules in order to help save it.… Why did I feel responsible or qualified to end the pattern of perpetual war? I cannot answer my own questions. But then, my insane stunt seemed to have worked. By the admission of both the US and the USSR, I provided the most extensive intelligence ever to the Soviets. With my material in hand, the Soviet government eventually realized the US planned no attack upon them, so my actions have contributed greatly to the Soviet Union’s decision to end the Cold War."

Great book, I personally know a individual that was on the ship with this author.

Although I wish it never happened it was interesting how he tried to justify what he did. it's a shame ne betrayed his Nation. He should have been deported to Russia.
Hidden Winter
poorly written by a traitor, but useful to gain the authors perspective.

I enjoyed this book actually written by the perpetrator of the crime of treason. Yes, I believe there were times he glossed over his actions by stating his intentions to shed light on his perceived governmental mistrusts. And to share his betrayal with friends and family members while bringing them into his schemes was reprehensible. But, it led to an interesting read.

This was bought for my son. He loved the book. He said to recommend it to anybody who likes that kind of book.

Havn't finished the book yet. But so far it is very good, his explanation on why he spied is very good and makes sense of the Cold War and how things were being conducted by our Govt. during that time period.

Not as good a read as "Family of Spies" but does reflect Johnny Walkers views toward his own spying and betrayal of America. I served in the Navy with this Naval Officer and was very disappointed to learn later on of his spying. He has no excuse. None. He tries to justify his spying in this book and even put a positive spin--that he actually served America's Interests by his deeds. No way. He damaged us extensively during the Vietnam War. He died in prison this year. Don't bother to read this.
John Walker's story is one that is fascinating, terrible, and somehow distinctly American. It's quite interesting to hear him rationalize his reasons for selling American secrets to the USSR, as he goes extremely in depth regarding the motives for his work. The story on the whole, however, is disappointing.
For those looking for a fast paced spy thriller, this story shows to be a boring, winded account that describes every detail of every house Walker bought, every car he drove, every military exercise he ever did, and even the restaurants he ate at. These trivial details make the story far too long and quite lacking in interesting content. In addition, Walker, despite being a talented spy, lacks any sort of talent as a writer. His sentences are badly formed, confusing, and hard to read. The book as a whole, written as a memoir, proves to be more like a collection of random ramblings. Those ramblings, like those of a stereotypical convict, are filled with rationalizations, excuses, and exaggerations that leave the reader frustrated and tired. If someone really wants to know about the life of John Walker, they will find far more information by spending ten minutes reading about him on Wikipedia.
