Strangers on a Bridge

The Case of Colonel Abel and Francis Gary Powers

James B Donovan

On 10 February 1962, on Glienicke Bridge between East Germany and West Berlin, the American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers was exchanged for Rudolf Abel, Soviet head of espionage in the USA. James Donovan was the American lawyer who defended Abel in court and negotiated his release to the USSR and the return of Powers. First published in 1964, this is the first-hand, inside story of a tense episode at the height of the Cold War. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
