Philps, Alan. "Britain and Russia Clash over 'Spies.'" Telegraph (London), 7 May 1996. []

On 6 May 1996, "Britain and Russia were locked ... in the most serious espionage row since the end of the Cold War after the Kremlin claimed to have uncovered a spy ring and ordered nine British embassy staff to leave the country. The Russian Federal Security Service ... said that a Russian had been caught selling 'political and military secrets' to British intelligence."


Philips, Alan. "Hotline Set Up for Traitors to Come in from the Cold." Telegraph (London), 5 Jun. 1997. []

"Kremlin spycatchers have opened a hotline in an attempt to lure Russian traitors into becoming double agents working for the motherland. Nikolai Kovalyov, director of the Federal Security Service,... appealed on television for agents who have worked with foreign intelligence services to come clean. He promised them full confidentiality and said they could keep the money they had acquired from hostile intelligence services."

The author reports on a visit to Philby's Russian widow, Rufina, who met Philby "in 1970, when she was 38, on a blind date organised by the Russian wife of the other MI6 double agent, George Blake.... He was a wreck: 21 years older than Rufina, lonely, unable to speak Russian and a drunkard." She has published a Russian memoir of Philby, entitled "I Did It My Way."

2. "Pimms and Marmalade Helped Philby Survive." Telegraph (London), 19 Jan. 1998. []

According to his fourth wife, Rufina, Kim Philby "kept homesickness at bay with regular supplies of marmalade, Pimms No 1, lime pickle and Gitanes cigarettes.... [T]o supplement her meagre Russian pension, [Rufina Philby] sold off some of his personal effects in 1994, raising £150,000."


Philips, Alan. "Moscow May Soften Line on Expulsion of 'Spies.'" Telegraph (London), 9 May 1996. []

"A hint that Russia was ready for compromise over the case of nine British embassy staff accused of spying emerged [on 8 May 1996] as negotiations continued in Moscow on how to prevent the row degenerating into a round of tit-for-tat expulsions."


Philips, Alan. "Russia Nears Deal on British 'Spies.'" Telegraph (London), 13 May 1996. []

"Most of the nine British embassy staff accused of involvement in a spy ring in Moscow may escape summary expulsion under a deal being worked out between the Foreign Office and Russian authorities. It is understood from well-informed Russian sources that only those staff 'directly connected' with running a Russian 'mole' will be ordered out."


Philips, Alan. "Russians Throw out Briton in Spy Row." Telegraph (London), 4 Mar. 1996. []

The Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed on 3 March 1996 that a British citizen's visa had been "cancelled due to suspicions of 'activities incompatible with his status as a businessman'.... An expulsion had been feared since Britain ordered out a Russian TV correspondent in London, Alexander Malikov, on grounds of national security in July" 1995.


Philips, Alan. "Spycatchers Go Softly at Kremlin." Telegraph (London), 10 Oct. 1996. []

President Yeltsin has pardoned a diplomat, Vladimir Makarov, "who spied for the CIA for more than a decade" after serving "only three months of a seven-year hard labour sentence.... The Kremlin used to shoot spies in the back of the head. But the director of the Federal Security Service,... Nikolai Kovalyov, has adopted a softer approach to unmask more double agents.... It is understood to be the first time that a convicted spy had been freed so early in his sentence. In the past only those who had served more than half their terms were eligible for early release under conditions of secrecy."

Goulden, Intelligencer 17.1 (Winter-Spring 2009), notes that the author was "a ground-level CIA officer in South Vietnam in the early 1950s." This book is a "sobering read from a man who knows what he is talking about." For Wiest, Proceedings 135.10 (Oct. 2009), this is "a riveting memoir that focuses on the tumultuous formative years of the short life of South Vietnam." It is "a critical primary source to the field of Vietnam War studies.... Why Vietnam Matters is both an enjoyable read and important history." Laurie, Studies 55.2 (Jun. 2011), suggests that "all intelligence officers should read and consider" this "very readable account."

They included Olin Dows...; Bill Blass...; Elsworth Kelly...; George Diestel...; Art Kane...; and Harold A. Laynor."
