Sir: Your issue of 28 June, with "How Soviet mole united Tito and Churchill", has just reached me. James Klugman briefed me for my mission (Demagogue) to Serbia in June 1944 and I can only say his briefing was fair and balanced. He made no secret of being a member of the British Communist Party; after all, we were all on the same side then.

Incidentally, Fitzroy Maclean never himself thought Tito was a woman; that was a puckish suggestion by Evelyn Waugh.
