Strangers on a Bridge

The Case of Colonel Abel



Strangers on the Bridge: the only inside account of the greatest spy story of the era. A real-life espionage classic.

With the Cold War at its height, the capture and trial of Colonel Abel, the Soviets' most formidable spy, revealed the chilling depths of the KGB's penetration of the West.

But when an American U-2 spy plane was shot down over Russia and its CIA pilot, Gary Powers, was captured, both men's fates hung in the balance.

With East and West staring each other down across the Iron Curtain the stakes couldn't have been higher. And at the heart of it all, from Abel's arrest to his exchange with Powers on Berlin's infamous 'Bridge of Spies', was James B. Donovan.
