Only knowing about the infamous escape from Wormwood Scrubs in the 1960's,the res of the story about George Blake was a revealation. The book covers in an objective manner, the rise and fall of George Blake, and the reasons he took such as a momentous step to spy for the KGB at the expense of his 'home' country, the United Kingdom. Roger Hermiston quotes exactly from George Blake why he took this momentous step. The book was good because it was factual, it left the reader to make the interpretations of the events, and come to their own conclusions about the affair. This book was well written and did not enter into difficult discussions about ideologies, and the reasons for spying. Good and entertaining read.
