review Anthony Blunt His Lives Download Anthony Blunt His Lives è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Miranda Carter ï 5 Download The first full biography of the notorious spy and an X ray of the British ruling class that produced him Once an untouchable member of England's establishment a world famous art historian and a man knighted by the ueen of England in a single stroke Anthony Blunt became an object of universal hatred when in 1979 Margaret Thatcher exposed him as a Soviet spy In Anthony Blunt His Lives Miranda Carter shows how one man lived out opposing trends of his century first as a rebel against his class then as its epitome and yet embodied a deeper paradox In the 1920s Blunt was a member of th. There were many facets to the glittering career of Anthony Blunt art historian director of Courtauld international art expert spy Surveyor of the ueens Pictures and establishment figure But what he is best remembered for is his betrayal for he was a traitorIn this book Carter has written a forensic dissection of his life from the privileged education at Marlborough and Cambridge his early career in the art world courtier to the royal family and war work in the intelligence services and post war activities where he built his reputation as an academic in the art world In his early days he held very Marxist views and these were reflected in his articles and writing A contemporary of Burgess Maclean and Philby he was one of those recruited whilst at Cambridge by the Soviets He passed a number of secrets to them during and after the war nothing to the level of Philby but crucial information nonetheless Rather than this being just a principled ideology he accepted a number of payments from them After leaving MI5 he was passed papers from Burgess to courier to themBurgess and Maclean defected and slowly the net closed in Philby was sacked from MI6 and the investigations were started on those that knew or were associated with these spies Blunt was one of those suspected but there was no evidence initially but slowly through the smoke and mirrors came the evidence that they needed The spies extracted a confession from Blunt and uietly brushed the scandal under the carpet with the intention of releasing the story after he had died In 1979 though his treachery was revealed in Parliament by Thatcher All his honours and knighthoods were stripped and he was hounded by the pressThis was a fascinating book to read in lots of ways The amount of detail in here is immense too even covering his visits to post war Germany to recover letters and artworks for the King Carter has covered with almost clinical precision probably everything that you could ever want to know about Blunt the others from the Cambridge ring play second fiddle in the book to Blunt as well making the focus mostly on him Blunt could have so easily not been a spy if the right opportunity had presented itself at the time but his Marxist sympathies and Cambridge contacts meant that he became one It was not done out of principle either he was paid for some of the material that he supplied showing that he was committed to these actions The spy agencies at the time never thought that people from the establishment would ever betray their country How wrong they wereAnd having been betrayed the establishment then sought to protect their own

Miranda Carter ï 5 Download

review Anthony Blunt His Lives Download Anthony Blunt His Lives è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Miranda Carter ï 5 Download Tions The layers of secrecy upon which Blunt's life depended are here stripped away for the first time using testimony from those who knew Blunt well but have until now kept silent and documents from sealed Russian archives including a secret autobiography Blunt wrote for his controllers Miranda Carter's Anthony Blunt is the first full biography of the mythical Cold War warrior and is at once an astonishing history of one the century's greatest deceits and adeeply nuanced account of fifty years in the British power elite as experienced by one deep inside who wished to bring it do. Very interesting life story of a controversial man I felt sorry for Anthony Blunt when he was exposed Whatever he had done wrong he regretted He was also a minor figure in the Cambridge spy ring compared to the other three Burgess Philby and Maclean He was active in World War II when the USSR was an allied nation not the Cold War when it become the enemy When he was berated by the Prime minister and the press it had been over thirty years since he was a Soviet agent The story is a textbook example of how heartless and cruel the mainstream media can be How many people just believe it unuestioningly and join what is effectively a lynch mob Many people have done far worse than Blunt and the press leaves them in peace or even celebrates them Look at Jimmy Savile
