But their match was not the only contest being waged that summer. The powers of east and west engaged in their own geopolitical chess match with the future of the world as their prize. Each complex move and counter of the two chess masters was mirrored in the shadows by the subtle thrust and parry in the covert struggle for dominance. These two representatives of their respective governments, societies and ideologies battled wits at center stage while behind the scenes the men and women of their nations’ clandestine services played a far more deadly game.
