In 1944 Kim Philby was appointed head of the anti-communist section of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, a crucial promotion that enabled him to spy at the highest level for Stalin’s Russia. Drawing on recently released materials from public and private archives, this serious account of Philby’s early years examines his ideological motivations and the manoeuvres behind his appointment, and asks how this privileged Cambridge graduate and Times correspondent became the ‘spy who betrayed a generation’.
