In My Own Words:
Retired after 45 years working for the military all over the world. Recovering from 2 major cancer operations when 1/2 of each lung was removed in Sept/Oct 2009. As long as I wake up each day and can see myself in the mirror I am okay.

Avid reader of non fiction only relative to intelligence, military or crime. Was a very keen numismatist and still have my collection.

A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betr&hellip by Ben Macintyre

5.0 out of 5 stars What a read !!!!!!, 30 May 2014
Possibly the best book that will be written on Kim Philby and his associates. In this book we go down the main highway of Philby's life as most of us know about but we slip off into little side streets where we are told things for the first time of Philby's life.

As with all Macintyre's books minutely researched and documented making it a simply superb read.
