The Game Of Nations Miles Copeland Book 1970


Copeland retired from the CIA in May 1957 to start the consulting firm Copeland & Eichelberger in Beirut, Lebanon, with his CIC and CIA colleague James Eichelberger; he did, however, continue to perform assignments for the Agency on request.[17] Copeland and his family returned to London in 1970. He made regular appearances on British television as an intelligence expert and pursued work in journalism, writing books on foreign policy, an autobiography, and contributing to the conservative American magazine National Review.[18] He helped Waddingtons design a board game, The Game of Nations, in which superpowers compete for influence in "the imaginary region of Kark"; the game was loosely based on Copeland's book of the same name.[19][20] Copeland's memoirs have a strong literary quality and contain many embellishments, making it difficult to gauge the historical accuracy of the covert operations he describes.[21] He was active in 1970s political efforts to defend the CIA against critics, including the Church Committee.[4] In 1988, he wrote an article titled "Spooks for Bush" which asserted that the intelligence community overwhelmingly supported George H. W. Bush for president;[4] he had named Bush his favorite CIA director.[5]




The Game of Nations Miles Copeland Book 1970



After retirement from the CIA, Copeland wrote foreign policy books and an autobiography, and articles for publications including the National Review. He was active in 1970s political efforts to defend the CIA against critics including the Church Committee. In 1988, Copeland wrote an article titled "Spooks for Bush" which asserted that the intelligence community overwhelmingly supported George H. W. Bush for U.S. President; Bush had run the CIA during the 1970s under Gerald Ford. In the introduction to his book 'Enemy Within', Guardian journalist Seumas Milne wrote that in the Spring of 1990, Copeland warned British miners' union leaders Arthur Scargill and Peter Heathfield that the CIA and MI5 had been involved in kickstarting a media campaign against them and helped to frame corrupt allegations against them.

In one of the prettiest chess games of all time (seriously, I could watch this game all day long ,), Jozsef Pinter conducted a spectacular king hunt in the endgame, using his own king to help checkmate Lajos Portisch! Here are some of the spectacles you will see in this game: 1) a piece sac in the endgame, 2) a king hunt, 3) a king march, 4) an amazing winning resource for Portisch, 5) beautiful checkmating combinations, 6) four consecutive checks, just like in the movies!


Great players who were at their peak and yet lived in the shadow of Kasparov and Karpov in the 1980s include Jan Timman, Ulf Andersson, Lubomir Ljubojevic, Alexander Beliavsky, and Rafael Vaganian. These and other players played many brilliant and ambitious games in the last decade to be largely untouched by computer analysis and computer databases. Most players still lugged their analytical work around in notebooks and suitcases. Informants were always to hand.
