New Documents Reveal This British WWII Spy May Have Been One of the Most Important Agents for the Soviets - by Christopher Woolf/ PRI's The World/ Public Radio International/ pri.org

"The name Cedric Belfrage may not mean much to you. But the British American film critic has just been exposed as one of the key spies of World War II.

"I think he was one of the most important spies the Soviet Union ever had," says Svetlana Lokhova, a historian of Soviet intelligence. "Because during Second World War when the very existence of the Soviet Union depended on the help from Britain and America and their Allies — and that help was slow in coming — he was able to provide all British and American information about opening of the second front, and the attitude of the Allies toward helping the Soviet Union. So this information was absolutely vital to the survival of the Soviet Union."

Secret British intelligence files on Belfrage were declassified by the UK’s National Archives this week.

So just who was Cedric Belfrage?..."


US troops wade ashore on D-Day. Belfrage is alleged to have passed information to the Soviets about the Allies plans to open a second front in World War II.
