Philby, Maclean, Burgess, Blunt, and John Cairncross.  These famous English spies, known for the University where they were recruited as young men between 1934 and 1937, spied for the Soviet Union before and during  World War II.  Three were assigned to the British embassy in  Washington,  D.C. at the start of the Cold War and into the 1950s.  How were they recruited by the NKVD, what motivated them, how damaging were they, and does their espionage legacy still effect the world today? David Major, retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent  (SSA)and former Director of Counterintelligence, Intelligence and Security Programs at the National Security Council in the White House, has provided high-level briefings on this case for the intelligence community and now he can share with you the incredible access and exploits of this NKVD/ KGB-controlled network.   With posts to positions of power such as the British Embassy in Washington, DC, knighthoods, and work with MI5 and MI6, this spy ring set the gold standard for access and national security damage.
