219 thought on “The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War

  1. A truly superb work of true life spy craft Other reviewers have than adequately outlined the content of this work I will just comment on my continued amazement at how during the Cold War so many liberals in the West were Soviet apologists blaming the West for all the world s problems In the UK particularly, so many in the Labour Party took money from Moscow while undermining democratic institutions The Soviet Union was a hell hole from beginning to end How anyone could support it in any way is i [...]


  2. The Spy and The Traitor is touted in its subhead as the greatest espionage story ever told That isn t just publisher hype The real events and the story of Oleg Gordievsky, KGB officer and diplomat reads like something from a John LeCarre or Robert Ludlum storyexcept it s true and marvelously documented Raised by a father and older brother who both served devotedly and unquestioningly in the KGB dad worked through Stalin s purges and survived in the KGB s precursor agency Loyalty to the service t [...]


  3. I thought I had read all the important main books on the Cold War, but Ben Macintyre comes through and gives us a true life narrative of one of the West s greatest heroes Oleg Gordievsky A man who helped, particularly the UK, inform the goings on of the KGB and all the Boris and Natasha s and helped hasten the end of that nasty politik.This would be best read in the autumn on a train in the UK Knowing that something good came out of all this, after all Ben Macintyre probably will be sitting behi [...]


  4. It is not for nothing that John Le Carre noted in a front cover blurb the best true spy story I have ever read Ben Macintyre s biography of KGB Colonel and MI6 spy Oleg Gordievsky reads like a novel His description of Gordievsky s exfiltration from Moscow by MI6 under the watchful eyes of the KGB has all the hallmarks of a tension packed Hollywood spy drama and that alone is worth the price of the book.The story begins with Gordievsky growing up as the son of a KGB general who becomes disillusio [...]


  5. It is rare that any book keeps my interest through the entire story, but this is one of them Because the story is true, it is better than even the best spy novel with made up characters and plot contrivances Here everything was real and in many instances Oleg s life depended on decisions made by his handlers The real life spy dramas are one of my favorite genres By the end of the book, I really felt sorry for Oleg s wife and daughters, who through no fault of their own, ended up in a nightmare w [...]


  6. I came to this book via A Spy Among Friends , Ben McIntyre s fine book on Kim Philby with extensive references to the Cambridge spy ring Although there is no one of the extraordinary, and charismatic nature of Guy Burgess here, the book is utterly compelling Quite apart from its deadly serious matter, the book is an enthralling read I cannot think of a spy novel to rival it.Essentially it concerns the remarkable Oleg Gordievsky, but we also learn a great deal about the KGB and British and Americ [...]


  7. He describes it as the best spy story he had ever read and I agree I read it over three days, it is a captivating story very well written The author must have access to some good MI6 material and their support.It is gripping, all the for recalling the period in which the events took place.In the epilogue the book continues right up to the poisoning of the Skripals.
