Description

The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government Summary The Devil’s Chessboard is a well-researched, insightful read into the life and legacy of Allen Dulles and the CIA. It gives numerous examples of how Dulles was not simply content to stay on American soil to fulfill American interests. As the director and founder of the CIA, Dulles exerts enormous power and influence over the nations of the world by successfully removing and installing puppet governments. Talbots offers an interesting background on Dulles, from his childhood as the son of Reverend Allen Macy Dulles to his relationship with his wife, Clover, and long-time mistress, Mary Bancroft. From the descriptions of family and friends, Dulles is described as a man who appeared indifferent to the suffering of others. He deemed people important only when he found them “useful” and was quick to dismiss them when they were not. This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book
