Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The demons which drove the proudly English Kim Philby to betray his country, its people and especially his MI6 colleagues have never before been so intimately examined and explained. A fascinating look into the mind of a tragic figure by his oldest and closest friend. --Chapman Pincher, author of Their Trade Is Treachery and Dangerous To Know

A fascinating, very personal account of Philby's treachery from his SIS colleague, teenage travelling companion and schoolboy friend who was left utterly betrayed. This is a unique insight from an insider. --Nigel West, author of The Crown Jewels and Operation Garbo

Elegant and rich in detail, it provides intriguing glimpses of the man who would become the 20th century's most notorious British spy and traitor. --Mail On Sunday

An often intimate portrait of the Third Man, candid in its assessments. --The Telegraph

[Milne] explains one of the most enduring mysteries surrounding the notorious Soviet spy. --The Guardian

There are some good anecdotes here - the cricketing recollections are Milne's - and some interesting suggestions that Philby wasn't such a big boozer as he's usually cracked up to be. Was this a pretence too? Yet what stands out above all is just how little bitterness Milne felt. --John Preston, Daily Mail

Milne's account of Philby is full of delightful trivia, but there is personal insight too. --Edward Wilson, The Independent

Tim Milne's finely written and refreshingly unhysterical book... Milne gives fascinating and revealing accounts of his friend's behaviour and attitudes. It might seem that by now Philby as a subject had been done to death, but as these two books amply illustrate, he is still a source of fascination and wonderment. --John Banville, The Guardian

The book offers a fascinating glimpse of the charismatic Philby. --William Chislett, El Imparcial

A workmanlike, honest account that unpeels a lifetime's friendship with the man whose treachery cost thousands of lives. --Ben Felsenburg, Metro

There are some good anecdotes here - the cricketing recollections are Milne's - and some interesting suggestions that Philby wasn't such a big boozer as he's usually cracked up to be.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Kim Philby, the so-called Third Man in the Cambridge spy ring, was the Cold War's most infamous traitor, a Soviet spy at the heart of British intelligence. Philby joined Britain's secret service MI6 during the war and went on to head the section tasked with rooting out Russian spies before becoming the service's chief liaison officer with the CIA. He betrayed hundreds of British and US agents to the Russians and compromised numerous operations inside the Soviet Union. Tim Milne was Philby's closest and oldest friend. They studied at Westminster School together and when Philby joined MI6 he immediately recruited Milne as his deputy. Philby's treachery was a huge blow to Milne and, after he retired, he wrote a highly revealing description of Philby's time in the secret service. Publication of the memoirs was banned by MI6 but, after Milne's death in 2010, his family were determined that this insider's account of the Philby affair be published. Edited to include newly released top-secret documents showing how the KGB's 'master spy' managed to fool MI6 even after he defected to Moscow, this is the final word on one of the world's most notorious spies by the MI6 colleague who knew him best, the insider account of the Philby affair that Britain's spy chiefs did not want you to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fascinating account 20 mai 2014
Par Richard Frost - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is the only first-hand account I have ever read of Philby by a close friend, professional colleague and career intelligence officer and is excellently written. The account of Philby's time at Westminster and their travels together through central Europe during university holidays to me is absolutely fascinating as are the lengthy chapters on work and life in Section V of the SIS. While Milne does not excuse Philby's actions, he comes closer to providing reasons than anything else I've seen in print. Clearly, Philby was a person who inspired great loyalty and even admiration among his friends and colleagues in the British service, the writer Graham Greene being just one of these. For anyone interested in understanding Philby this is a great read as it's a true account; the other book I read recently is Ben Macintyre's book about Kim Philby's supposedly close friendship with Nicholas Elliott which I found full of factual errors and distortions. Elliott knew Philby for just over 20 years since they first met, according to Elliott's own autobiography, when the latter joined the SIS in late 1941 and indeed the first time they actually worked together was in Beirut when Elliott was meant to be running Philby as an Agent. Milne on the other hand knew Philby for nearly forty years and his book is the real thing

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Kim Philby from a friend's view 30 avril 2014
Par ernest v. montford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is well written but doesn't really offer much in additional information on Britain's most infamous spy. If you know nothing of H. A. R. Philby it will mean little to you, if you do it offers modest entertainment. The author was the famous A. A. Milne's nephew and a career foreign service official. He knew Philby from school days at Westminster in London but they went to different universities.

The author strives for fairness while acknowledging Philby was a long time friend. It seems Milne never suspected the spy of working for the Russians but he had a large amount of company in that. One thing did puzzle me was MI6s forbidding the publication of the book in 1970. It was finally published posthumously by Milne's daughter and I cant see anything that would have harmed Great Britain's interests. I suspect the Secrets Act covers a lot of sins in that fine country.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Kim Philby - His Choice 5 juillet 2014
Par Rosemary M. Read - Publié sur Amazon.com

Tim Milne knew Kim Philby better than most people, he remained a friend throughout their careers in the British Security Service. He takes us into the world of documenting, evaluating, assessing scraps of information gleaned by clandestine means from enemy sources. At this time this was the domain of intelligent "top people". This to outsiders was quaintly British, its members came from the best Public (USA private) schools, good colleges and well known families. This was the best "vetting" system. From childhood all were known and could be entrusted with top secrets. These people were tasked with discovering the plans and thoughts of the enemy by every means possible and to outwit and defeat them. Their work was an outstanding success but Britain has a long history of spying, going back hundreds of years. Kim Philby was accepted by the Security Service because he belonged, he was part of the club, he had all the credentials. Good family,well known Public School and Cambridge University. His other resume more ominous. He was also employed by Soviet Intelligence. . He was popular, to his friends constant and had a remarkable aptitude for his work for British Intelligence while maintaining his contacts with his other masters. In spite of the many books written about Philby the mystery remains. What attracted him to the Communist cause? He was at ease among his Establishment friends among whom were writers, journalists, politicians and he had an interesting social life. He did not appear to have an interest in what may be considered the social injustices of the period. He chose a double life of immense stress culminating in exile. Tim Milne charts their lives and when the treachery is finally unveiled there appears more sorrow than anger at the denouement.
This book is interesting as it illustrates the lesser known human side of Kim Philby The early days of trips to Europe. His domestic life and the life-long friendship with the author.

Excellent story and an easy read. I had no idea who Kim Philby was but after reading this book I read several additional books and Milne ' s was the most detailed and intriguing.
