Autorentext

M. S. Kohli, India's most eminent mountaineer, led the successful Everest Expedition of 1965 that put nine men on the summit - a world record that stood for seventeen years. His books include Mountaineering in India and The Himalayas. Kenneth Conboy is a former policy analyst and deputy director at the Heritage Foundation whose other books include The CIA's Secret War in Tibet and Spies and Commandos (see page 28).

Klappentext

Legendary Indian climber M. S. Kohli and historian Kenneth Conboy chronicle for the first time the clandestine operations, dangers, and mishaps that formed a joint U.S.-Indian effort to plant a nuclear-powered sensor high in the Himalayas to monitor China's growing nuclear capabilities.



Zusammenfassung
After the Chinese detonated their first nuclear test in 1964, America and India were both concerned. The CIA knew it needed to gather more information, but had few ways of achieving this. This text chronicles the effort to plant a sensing device on a Himalayan peak in order to listen in on China.
