As I listened to this book, I knew that I was in deep doo-doo when the reader talked about documenting the sources...ugh, thought I, footnotes of infinite length :-( in a Senior Level Poly-Sci class. The preface took about a half hour and then the book started. It was written/read like an academic tome suitable for a 400-level class on spies in WWII and it may be suitable for such research. When the reader began to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher, I gave up and thought to myself: "I'm driving down this long road, listening to this book and I'm more bored than usual.

At 7:53 a.m., December 7, 1941, America's national consciousness and confidence were rocked as the first wave of Japanese warplanes took aim at the U.S. Naval fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor.

Richard Sorge was dispatched to Tokyo in 1933 to serve the spymasters of Moscow. For eight years, he masqueraded as a Nazi journalist and burrowed deep into the German embassy, digging for the secrets of Hitler’s invasion of Russia and the Japanese plans for the East. In a nation obsessed with rooting out moles, he kept a high profile—boozing, womanizing, and operating entirely under his own name. But he policed his spy ring scrupulously, keeping such a firm grip that by the time the Japanese uncovered his infiltration, he had done irreversible damage to the cause of the Axis. The first definitive account of one of the most remarkable espionage sagas of World War II, Target Tokyo is a tightly wound portrayal of a man who risked his life for his country, hiding in plain sight.… (mais)
