Canada Royal Commission.  
The Report of the Royal Commission Appointed under Order in Council, P.C. 411 of February 5, 1946.

Publisher: Ottawa, Edmond Cloutier, Printer to the King, 27 June 1946.
733 p. Title continues: To Investigate the Facts and Circumstances Surrounding the Communication, by Public Officials and Other Persons in Positions of Trust, of Secret and Confidential Information to Agents of a Foreign Power. On 5 September 1945, Igor Gouzenko, a cipher clerk employed at the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa since 1943, left the Embassy with documents which showed a pattern of espionage generated from that Embassy. This is the publication of that document, which for the first time revealed the extent of Soviet activities directed at the West. It was the beginning of a 50-year-long hunt for Soviet spies and is the foundation rock for the mighty edifice of books on the subject, including those on Burgess and Maclean and, ultimately, Philby and Blunt, whose existence as moles was first hinted at in this Report.

Publisher: London, Allan Wingate, 1957.
252 p. Autobiography of a German of the Junker class who served in the Uhlan Guard Cavalry in World War I, then in the German Diplomatic Service. Disillusioned with Hitler and the Nazis, he provided the British with information. When the trail to him got hot in 1940, he fled his post in The Hague, returning to East Germany in 1954. This is an interesting, even touching, memoir of what it was like to be an official of the Third Reich and out of sympathy with it. Von Putlitz and his family, as well as the German people, suffered grievously. But this is not an altogether candid account. The penultimate chapter (30; 4 p.) is on Guy Burgess, who is described as a friend of 25 years (since 1933); his appearance here seems out of place. Burgess himself had betrayed his government and had fled to Moscow in 1951, but is not mentioned in the text. (Although Anthony Blunt is noted in the Preface as 'one whose kindness and understanding I will never forget'). Other sources indicate that Von Putlitz was one of Burgess' main sources of German information during the '30s. At page 175 he says that 'I was far from being a doctrinaire Marxist' and then apologizes for Stalin for his pact with Hitler. The subtext of this book is that the author was probably in the anti-Nazi, the Communist, homosexual circles that included Burgess and Blunt. As interesting as this book is, it only provides the top layer of the story. Dj has tears; VG. Stock#22748.
