Title: No hiding place
Content: For fans of books about spooks in general and Nigel West in particular this book is a must. For the first time we learn about the author’s singular tradecraft as we follow him on a fifty year voyage of exploration around the murky world of international espionage. West explains that his lifelong fascination began as a schoolboy at Downside where one of the monks, ex-MI6, used to invite a former colleague to give talks to a group of boys. His name was David Cornwell aka John le Carré. A number of the boys in the group later opted for careers in the clandestine world. West himself chose a different if parallel path as the self-appointed historian of the security services which has yielded almost thirty books and an unrivalled reputation as an authority on intelligence matters who as lectured at the headquarters of both the CIA and the KGB. What sets West apart from other writers is his willingness to go to almost any lengths to track down the people behind the events. Perhaps his greatest coup was finding GARBO, the codename given to Juan Pujol Garcia, a Spaniard living in Venezuela who had played a key role in Double Cross and uniting him with his wartime controller Roger Fleetwood-Hesketh, the mastermind behind FORTITUDE the operation which fooled the Germans into thinking the D Day landing would be in Calais rather than the beaches of Normandy. Another discovery was Halina Szymanska, a Polish spy who had worked for MI6 having been the mistress of the Nazi head of military intelligence, Admiral Canaris. But West is as keen talk to the villains as the heroes. In the pages of Classified! we meet, among others, the notorious traitors Anthony Blunt, George Blake and John Cairncross, the so-called Fifth Man. The ‘Admiralty Spy’ John Vassall, having been lured to lunch at the Savoy even became a willing collaborator in the TV series Spy! on which West was the key researcher. After making the acquaintance so many players in the espionage game it is not always easy to distinguish between the patriots and the scoundrels, the heroes and the villains. As West reveals, many risked their lives and suffered great hardship on secret service only to live out their lives in poverty and obscurity. Equally, betrayal does not appear to be a path to happiness as the author deposes: ‘My conclusions about defectors were mixed. Blake was the only surviving British defector in Moscow and seemed to me to be living a miserable existence, even if he had the use of a dacha in the country and was well off by Soviet standards. My experience of Soviet defectors in the UK suggested that they were also unhappy individuals who were wretched about having broken with the motherland.’ Classified! The adventures of a molehunter is a masterpiece of intelligence literature which shines a stark light on a dark and mysterious world.
