X, Mr., with Bruce E. Henderson and C.C. Cyr. Double Eagle: The Autobiography of a Polish Spy Who Defected to the West. Indianapolis, IN: Bobbs-Merrill, 1979. New York: Ballantine, 1983. [pb]

Clark comment: The author was a Polish Security Service (UB) lieutenant colonel who was recruited by the CIA and worked in place in Norway from 1964 to 1966 when he defected to the United States. According to Pforzheimer, "[p]ersonal, familial, and nationalist concerns have apparently soured him." Nevertheless, the book gives a "window ... into the organization, selection, training, and the operational flavor of UB life, including the workings of the Soviet advisor system." Constantinides finds that the author "does not discuss his operations in sufficient length or detail to make them interesting."
