Wesley Britton’s Books, Interviews, and Media Appearances ~
Wes Britton at the
International Spy Museum

Dr. Wesley Britton gives a talk at the International Spy Museum.

Opening in July of 2002, the International Spy Museum, located in Washington, DC, is the only public museum in the United States dedicated solely to espionage.

Its vast collection of espionage-related artifacts, some never before seen by the public, were gathered together through the cooperation of the CIA and the KGB, including weapons used by both sides, such as the Russian-issued “lipstick” gun meant to fire a single bullet at close range.

The intent of the museum is to present the global history of espionage and the important role its men and women played in world events, from Biblical spies and the Elizabethan age through World Wars 1 and 2, to the present day.

In addition to its state-of-the-art exhibits, the International Spy Museum presents lectures and film programs throughout the year on the history and elements of spycraft.

As of this writing, Wes Britton has appeared twice as a guest presenter.
