But, perhaps its finest moments were during the Cold War (1947-1991) and some great fiction has captured the intrigue of that era. Here are samples from a list of "10 of the Greatest Cold War Spy Novels” compiled by Flavorwire.
From Russia With Love by Ian Fleming
The Ipcress File by Len Deighton
Ice Station Zebra by Alistair MacLean
The Manchurian Candidate by Richard Condon
Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene
