"Even more mysteirous to most Americans than CIA itself," a 1967 Time cover story began, "is its director, Richard McGarrah Helms, 53, an intense, controlled, self-effacing professional who holds one of the most delicate and crucial posts in Washington." A Secret History of the CIA Vol. 5 throws new light on a legendary period in CIA history. Based on full access to CIA's classified records and extensive interviews with Helms and his lieutenants, this book offers an authoritative account of Helms' tenure as Director of Central Intelligence under two presidents. By focusing on those issues and events that included the overthrow of Allende in Chile, the Six-Day War, and Watergate, this work offers an important view of the CIA in its last years as a preeminent Cold War instrument of presidential power.
