Rezun, Vladimir Bogdanovich

(1948– )
   A GRU officer serving in Geneva, Rezun defected to the West in 1978. He has since written a number of accounts of his life in the Red Army and the GRU under the nom de plume “Viktor Suvorov”; the name was taken from one of the greatest tsarist marshals. The books have been published in a number of languages; his account of life in the military in-telligence service, Aquarium, has been published in Russian. Rezun was sentenced to death in absentia following his defection.
