Summary
As a member of the spy ring known as the Cambridge Five, Kim Philby was one of the Cold War's most infamous double agents; a spy whose name became synonymous with treachery. He was the spy at the heart of British intelligence, joining the Service during the war and rising to become Head of Soviet counterintelligence. Later, as MI6's liaison in Washington, he betrayed every secret of Allied operations to the Russians. On more than one occasion, the information he passed on led directly to the deaths of British agents in the field. This book provides the full uncensored story of Kim Philby, the so-called 'Third Man' in the infamous Cambridge Spy Ring, told by one of his closest friends
