The Looking Glass War is a 1965 spy novel by John le Carré. Written in response to the positive public reaction to his previous novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, the book explores the unglamorous nature of espionage and the danger of nostalgia. The book tells the story of an incompetent British intelligence agency known as The Department and its multiple botched attempts to verify a Communist defector's story of a Soviet missile buildup in East Germany. From the John le Carré novel about a British spy, who sends a Polish defector to East Germany, to verify missile sites. During the Cold War, the British Intelligence receives a blurred photograph from East Germany taken from Hamburg and Director LeClerc Sir Ralph Richardson believes they are missiles. Their agent, Taylor King Timothy West, who receives a film which might clarify the detail from a pilot in Finland, is found dead on the road, and the Police believe he was accidentally killed in a hit-and-run.

John le Carré's classic novels deftly navigate readers through the intricate shadow worlds of international espionage with unsurpassed skill and knowledge, and have earned him unprecedented worldwide acclaim. THE LOOKING GLASS WAR Once upon a time the distinction had been clear: the Circus handled all things political while the Department dealt with matters military. John le Carré- Interview Spy Who Came In From The Cold Merv Griffin Show 1965. A Masterpiece of Murder 1986 - Продолжительность: 1:54:, Le Carré followed The Looking Glass War with Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, which I am currently reading, and that is a real page-turner. If you, like me, prefer to read series novels in order, I can honestly recommend that you skip this one and go directly from The Spy Who Came in from the Cold to Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. I have always heard that John le Carre is the preeminent spy writer, that he came from that world and is also a serious writer. I cannot vouch for the authenticity in THE LOOKING GLASS WAR but I can confirm this book is more than just a spy story. The setting of the story is post-World War II, but near the beginning of the Cold War.

Early in the 1960s the cold war is in full swing, and the Department, a holdover from the WWII section of British intelligence, forms an uneasy alliance with its rival agency, the Circus, when it is suspected that Soviet missiles may be in the process of being placed along the West German border. PENGUIN MODERN CLASSICS THE LOOKING GLASS WAR John le Carré was born in 1931. Submit review. Want to see. In this Cold War espionage-thriller, adapted from the novel of John Le Carre, two veteran British intelligence operatives, Leclerc Ralph Richardson and Haldane Paul Rogers, recruit a young Polish defector Christopher Jones to check on some missiles in East Germany. Avery Anthony Hopkins is the British agent assigned to help him to cross the East German border. A Cold War thriller from the master of spy fiction, John le Carré's The Looking Glass War is a gripping novel of double-crosses, audacious bluffs and the ever-present threat of nuclear war, published in Penguin Modern Classics. When the Department - faded since the war and busy only with bureaucratic battles - hears rumour of a missile base near the West German border, it seems like the perfect opportunity to regain some political standing in the Intelligence market place. The Cold War is at its height and the Department is dying for a piece of the action. Production: ColumbiaFrankovich. Crew: Color Widescreen. Available on VHS. Extract of a review from 1970.
