A Spy Among Friends by Ben Macintyre PDF Download
La 4ème couv. indique : "In the aftermath of the Second World War, Kim Philby, Nicholas Elliot and James Jesus Angleton were rising stars in the intelligence world, and firm friends. The three spies belonged to the same clubs, drank in the same bars, wore the same well-tailored suits and spoke in similar cut-glass accnts. Philby and Eliott were in the 'golden lads' of MI6, Britain's secret intelligence service; Angleton was the brilliant young American chief of counter-intelligence at the CIA. For years, they shared every secret. But Philby had one secret he did not disclose : he was, all along, covertly working for Moscow, divulding everything to his Soviet spymasters, with bloody consequences. Elliott and Angleton thought they knew Philby better than anyone, and then discovered they had known him not at all. This is a story of trust and treachery, class and consciences; of an ideological battle between friends, exquisitely polite and perfectly ruthless, waged in the comfortable clubs and restaurants of London and Washinton; of male friendships forged, and then systematically betrayed."
