The British Secrets at the Heart of the KGB Archives
For the first time, the KGB archives yield up their notorious "Crown Jewells" - the KGB's unofficial term for their most valuable assets - and we can at last examine the original manuscript and typescript reports of British pro-Soviet spies and assess the scale of their duplicity.
Many of these reports by Kim Philby, Guy Burgess, Donald Maclean, Anthony Blunt and John Cairncross are reproduced here for the first time. With new material on the Soviet spymasters and recruiters, the atomic spy Klaus Fuchs, the Lonsdale circle and other shadowy intelligence activists of the Cold War years, Nigel West proves himself once again the best-informed of all writers on intelligence and security issues.
