The Baltic, 1992: A shabbily dressed old man enters a British embassy with a sheaf of topsecret documents hidden at the bottom of his battered suitcase. Ex-KGB worker Vasili Mitrokhin was about to reveal the most sensational intelligence archive the world had seen. The World Was Going Our Way reveals in full the secrets of this astonishing cache, showing for the first time the extent of the KGB's influence around the world, from making friends with Fidel Castro in Cuba to starting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. For over twenty years, the KGB believed that the Third World was the arena in which it could win the Cold War against the West. Telling untold stories of conspiracies combined with bizarre black comedy on a global scale, this expose of the world's most powerful secret organization transforms our understanding of the Cold War.
