To Russia With Love?

With apologies to James Bond, of course, I note there is a new book about double agent Kim Philby.

Russia Beyond the Headlines suggests this book explores a chapter in Philby's life that otherwise has largely been ignored.

Perhaps more fascinating is RBTH's re-posting of documents pertaining to Philby's rush to flee Lebanon and get to the Soviet Union. That happened in 1963.
