The bloody rise and shocking fall of a US spymaster in Cold War Korea

Donald Nichols loved dogs. In Korea, he had a snarling pack of mutts for protection from North Korean assassins. At his spy base outside Seoul, his dogs sometimes ate with him in the officers' mess and occasionally bit other Air Force officers. Photo courtesy of Lindsay Morgan
