The Cold War Museum, in cooperation with Old Bust Head Brewing Company, will presents a talk by former Washington Post reporter Steve Vogel on “Betrayal in Berlin: The Berlin Tunnel and the Mole in MI6.”
The event will be held Sunday, Feb. 23, at 2 p.m. at the Cold War Museum, 7134 Farm Station Road in Vint Hill.
Vogel will speak about his new book “Betrayal in Berlin” and will describe his research and take questions. The book tells the true story of the Berlin Tunnel, the American-British Cold War operation to dig a tunnel into East Berlin to intercept Soviet secrets, and the operation's betrayal by the dangerous British spy George Blake.
Vogel is a veteran journalist who reported for the Washington Post for more than two decades, writing frequently about the military. He covered the fall of the Berlin Wall as well as military operations in Iraq, Somalia, Rwanda and the Balkans.
