Summary
Duncan Chaplin Lee was one of the highest-ranking moles in the wartime U.S. intelligence apparatus. Lee was chief aide to William "Wild Bill" Donovan, the fabled head of the Office of Strategic Services and grandfather of the CIA. During World War II, Lee's political sympathies and desire to advance the fight against fascism led him to leak highly classified information to the Soviets. J. Edgar Hoover would tirelessly trace Lee's movements in an attempt to prove his guilt. A Very Principled Boy shows just how deeply Soviet spies were entrenched in the American intelligence community at the height of the Cold War
