George Blake had an unusual childhood in Holland and Egypt and briefly worked for the Dutch resistance before coming to Britain in 1942, where he was recruited by MI6. His conversion to Communism took place during the Korean War and his exposure, trial and escape to Moscow was one of the media sensations of the 1960s. This biography draws on new testimony from former spies, friends and from Blake himself.
