An outstanding account of the infamous Walker family. Led by Naval officer John Walker (not to be confused with "American Taliban" John Walker) his brother and son joined him in his treasonous endeavours supplying top secret information to the Soviet Union during the cold war and Viet Nam. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
