An enterprising journalist, he has used the Freedom of Information Act to unearth massive documentation on how U. In establishing facts he does an impressive job-and it is not a pretty story although certainly a fascinating one. His broader judgments, however, raise a few questions.

One would hardly know from his account that the Soviet Union had anything to do with the onset of the cold war, or that the West had any legitimate concern with the suppression of freedom in Eastern Europe. The severe critique of American officials applies to everyone-from Truman, Eisenhower, the Dulles brothers especially Allen, of course and George Kennan down to the many operatives in the CIC, CIA and other agencies who did the dirty work-the brand of deceptiveness, cynicism, amorality and manic obsession with the Soviet threat.

In the context of their phenomenal achievements, which the author describes in ample detail, it is not surprising that many military men on the Allied side were more interested in their expertise and in keeping it out of the hands of rivals than in their pasts. There was a legitimate question of national interest, although in practice the end was held to justify the most questionable of means. Not so shrill or indiscriminately accusatory as Simpson, Bower comes to much the same conclusions on the U.

He also goes at length into the little-known story of how some officials, mainly in the State Department, fought hard against the deception and law-bending that accompanied the entire process. Author Bio.

BLOWBACK CHRISTOPHER SIMPSON PDF

Life[ edit ] Simpson was born between and , probably at Egton , North Yorkshire. He was the eldest son of Christopher Sympson, a Yorkshireman , who is usually described as a cordwainer but who was also the manager of a theatre company patronised by wealthy Yorkshire Catholics. It is thought that Sympson senior may have preferred to portray himself at times as a simple craftsman, rather than a high-profile Catholic sympathiser, at a time when Catholics were harshly persecuted in England. There is a theory put forward by Urquhart that Christopher Simpson junior , the musician, could have been the same Simpson or Sampson who was educated as a Jesuit in continental Europe and was ordained as a Catholic priest in Simpson fought in the English Civil War , on the Royalist side and, in , was a quarter-master in the army of the Earl later Duke of Newcastle. Following the siege of York, Simpson took refuge at the manor of Sir Robert Bolles — , at Scampton , Lincolnshire , where Bolles employed him as a resident musician and tutor to his son John.
