    During the Cold War, surveillance in Moscow was the most difficult kind of surveillance that the US had encountered around the globe. Moscow had its own set of rules since it was such a difficult place to work. Former CIA Chief of Disguise Jonna Mendez talks about some of the tactics, gadgets and disguises CIA operatives used in the field during the Cold War.

    Check out Jonna Mendez’s most recent book The Moscow Rules or find more information about her on her website on www.themasterofdisguise.com/
