George Blake was entrusted with building up British intelligence networks behind the Iron Curtain, but was also a Soviet spy, and in 1961 he was sentenced to an unprecedented 42 years in jail. Drawing on interviews with Blake himself, hitherto unpublished records from his trial and new revelations about his dramatic jailbreak from Wormwood Scrubs, this biography examines both his Cold War treachery and his heroism during the Second World War.
