Dr Klaus Fuchs, who can lay claim to being the most successful spy in history, was a refugee from Nazi Germany, entrusted with crucial work at the heart of the British and American nuclear weapons project. Fuchs, however, gave every piece of information he had to the KGB. Then in 1950, his spy mission complete, he made an unprompted confession to MI6. His espionage accelerated the start of the Cold War between Russia and the West.
Author Mike Rossiter writes in his introduction about his difficult path in researching this book, prompted by his belief that there was much still to learn about Fuchs.
