"When young schoolmaster Dick White was tapped to join the ranks of the British counter-intelligence bureau M15, he brought to his new position a strong patriotism, a vigorous work ethic, and a well-defined sense of right and wrong. What he found when he got there - and as he rose to become the most respected intelligence chief in British history - was a maelstrom of corruption, bad judgment, leaky security, and betrayal that would vex him the rest of his days." "The Perfect English Spy tells the detailed, riveting story of how this pragmatic, trusting man maneuvered Britain's intelligence forces through their darkest hours, from 1936 to 1972. The result of many years of candid interviews and access to confidential files from M15, SIS, and KGB sources, the book exposes a dramatic career from the dawn of World War II to the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia and the explosive "Spycatcher Affair.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
