SUMMARY Þ SALAMUSEO.CO ☆ Kim Philby

FREE DOWNLOAD ¼ My Silent War The Autobiography of a Spy SUMMARY Þ SALAMUSEO.CO ☆ Kim Philby Entant spy It inspired John le Carré’s Smiley novels and the later espionage novels of Graham Greene Kim Philby was history’s most successful spy He was also an exceptional writer who gave us the great iconic story of the Cold War and revolutionized in the process the art of espionage writi. I was expecting so much of this book since Kim Philby was the most notoriously successful spy of the entire Cold War era and uite possibly the most important secret agent who ever lived And it s not that Philby can t write because he really can yet his choice of material and his impartial approach seems to render his extraordinary life almost dry and dull Kim Philby was a secret lifelong Soviet Communist who became the head of the British secret service MI6 and betrayed or seriously compromised nearly all covert activity by every agent operating for the Americans and British yet managed to remain in place and undetected for almost three decades However Philby s book never rises above just the facts and completely lacks emotional depth This book should have been a thrill a minute but comes across almost as flat and passionless as a Wikipedia entry John le Carre based his Smiley character on Kim Philby and I think that the fictionalized account provides realism than Philby s own autobiography And this is most unfortunate since Kim Philby was a writer of exceptional uality and I m mystified that he chose to tell the story of his most exceptional life with such a dearth of excitement Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament just the facts and completely lacks emotional depth This book should have been a thrill a minute but comes across almost as flat and passionless as a Wikipedia entry John le Carre based his Smiley character on Kim Philby and I think that the fictionalized account provides realism than Philby s own autobiography And this is most unfortunate since Kim Philby was a writer of exceptional uality and I m mystified that he chose to tell the story of his most exceptional life with such a dearth of excitement

He betrayed his country yes perhaps he did but who among us has not committed treason to something or someone important than a country asks Graham Greene in the foreword Yes but not many of us have worked with a government to deprive individuals of their life or liberty Eighteen young men were parachuted into Eastern Europe and thanks to Philby were never heard from againIt s a cold book and I couldn t help thinking that Philby s greatest crime was taking it all too seriously It sounds like he was the only person in MI6 MI5 the FBI or the CIA doing anything other than arguing with colleagues in the governments or other agencies He takes great joy in pointing out how ineffectual the services were and how most agents spent huge amounts of time receiving generous salaries for doing nothing Philby demonstrates that he worked hard driving around Turkey and taking countless photos of the border with the USSR But perhaps it would have been better if he d been like the othersthe men of the FBI with hardly an exception were proud of their insularity of having sprung from the grass roots One of the senior G men I met in Washington claimed to have had a grandpappy who kept a general store at Horse Creek Missouri They were therefore whisky drinkers with beer for light refreshment By contrast CIA men flaunted cosmopolitan postures They would discuss absinthe and serve Burgundy above room temperature This is not just flippancy It points to a deep social cleavage between the two organisations
