When the Canadian authorities discovered a Soviet spy network in Canada in the spring of 1946, it made a sensation across the continent, but many details were still hidden from the official press and public attention. The book is a complete and accurate report on the materials submitted by the Canadian government and the published investigation materials of the Royal Commission of Inquiry. It shows the development of a Soviet spy network with the headquarter in Ottawa, covering not only Canada, but also the United States and Great Britain.

Hirsch Richard was a former lieutenant and colonel of the Military Intelligence Division of the General Staff of the United States Military Ministry.


The book printed in a German camp for Ukrainian Displaced Persons (DP) in the aftermath of WWII.
