Tradecraft is the term applied to techniques used by intelligence personnel to assist them in conducting their operations and, like many other professions, the espionage business has developed its own rich lexicon. In the real, sub rosa world of intelligence-gathering, each bit of jargon acts as a veil of secrecy over particular types of activity. This book explains and give examples of how these operations happened, drawing on the first-hand experience of defectors to and from the Soviet Union; case officers who have put their lives at risk by "pitching" a target in a "denied territory;" and the NOCs who lived under alias to spy abroad.
