Story Behind The Art
The most interesting spy story ever told is absolutely true. Five students from Cambridge University began spying for Russia in 1934. Over the years, each rose to a position of power in British government. They were so highly placed they were privy to secret conversations between Churchill and Roosevelt. The group was known later as the Oxford Five because they met with their Russian handler at The Tavern at Oxford University. Ironically, Stalin doubted much of their information because he could not believe such high-ranking British officials would betray their country. He feared they had been planted to deceive him.
