“Gene Stackelberg” was the pseudonym of Arthur Eugene Adams (1917-2007), a former soldier who became a professor of Russian history and a CIA consultant. He also wrote fiction (Quimby, Special Agent, Moscow Nights, etc) and non-fiction (An Atlas of Russian and East European History, Stalin & His Times, The Russian Revolution & Bolshevik Victory, etc) and, for many years, was an administrator at Ohio State University, where there is a street named in his honor.
Double Agent was adapted into the 1968 spy movie The Man Outside starring Van Heflin.Gene Stackelberg / Espionage, Thriller
