Was watching this thing on Oleg Penkovsky on History. I dont think we have ever had a thread on spies and espionage etc. Now dont jump to James Bond and post stories of all Bond movies.. Let us talk about all the famous or infamous cases of spies and espionage.
Here is the case of Oleg Penkovsky.

Eli Cohen-

Eli Cohen (Hebrew: אלי כהן"Ž, born 26 December 1924, died 18 May 1965) was an Israeli spy. He is best known for his work in Syria, where he developed close relationships with the political and military hierarchy and became the Chief Adviser to the Minister of Defense of syria. He was eventually exposed and executed in Syria in 1965. The intelligence he gathered is claimed to have been an important factor in Israel's Six Day War.[1]Eli Cohen is survived by his wife Nadia and their three children, Sophie, Irit and Shai.

He helped the Soviets get the atomic bomb. Was passing secrets right from 1941. He got away with is life because the soviets were technically friends and allies during that time and it did not amount to treason.
