R. Vogeler, E. Sanders and their accomplices before the criminal court

Budapest: The Hungarian State Publishing House, 1950. 309p., a few inserted plates (fuzzy courtroom pix), paperstock is uniformly browned and tending towards the fragile, wraps with tears at spine ends.

Materials "from the office of the state prosecutor in Budapest." Title reflects a presumed English-speaking audience-interest as regards this translation; there were half a dozen accused from various European backgrounds, Vogeler and Sanders were the only ones trained on British or American turf. All are participants in a plot to retard Hungarian economic growth, as this cataloguer understands the charges. Vogeler and Sanders in particular were directed by a number of agencies, amongst which no CIA, but (searching at random) US Army intelligence aka CIC aka ODI, last-named organization being an "extended and strengthened" version of CIC based in Vienna (see p.235). Vogeler is said to be "a schooled and trained spy of the United States. He was trained for his work not only at the U.S. Naval Academy, but in 1942 he attended the school for spies established by the Federal Bureau of Investigation" --here follow excerpts from Vogeler's confession. Sanders (see pp.237ff) "was a spy of the British as well as of the Americans" who "trained in England and later in Helouan, near Cairo" and his early activities were in Egypt --details follow.
