Over the years, the “Tyler Kent Affair” has been dealt with in many books and newspaper articles, often very inaccurately. Here is the only detailed public explanation by the man who was at the center of it. This former US foreign service officer, who served with the US embassy in Soviet Russia and then in wartime London, tells the amazing story of how he secretly copied confidential dispatches between Washington and London that showed illegal collaboration between the British and US governments. Kent describes his arrest in May 1940 and, with US government sanction, his secret trial in London and subsequent imprisonment. From the Fourth IHR Conference, 1982.
