Recruited by means of the old-boy community into Britain’s MI-6, H. Montgomery Hyde started his spying profession sharing a room with Philby co-conspirator Man Burgess. Earlier than World Conflict II was over, he knew J. Edgar Hoover, the Duke of Windsor, Hollywood filmmaker Alexander Korda, advertiser David Ogilvy, Charlie Chaplin, Betty Grable, and double agent Dusko Popov ("Tricycle", the primary operative to make use of the "microdot." His exploits ranged from New York to Algiers and Casablanca, from invading diplomatic pouches to sleeping with a dancer in Tangier to show her Nazi connection—proving that the key triumphs of Anglo-American intelligence weren’t with out their share of glamour and excessive journey.
