With the arrest yesterday of an alleged Russian spy ring in the United States, espionage is in the news.
I thought I’d put together a quick list of good links related to spies and spying. I’ll be adding to it as I have time.
Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About Spies:

Spy Tools is another slideshow from LIFE.
The History Channel has quite a few spy-related online videos.
How Stuff Works has a similar list of videos.
