The Spy Who Loved, The Secrets and Lives of Christine Granville

Creator: Clare Mulley | Biography & Autobiography - 2013-06-11

The Untold Story of Britain's First Female Special Agent of World War II In June 1952, a woman was murdered by an obsessed colleague in a hotel in the South Kensington district of London.

Publisher: Macmillan

About this book
The Untold Story of Britain's First Female Special Agent of World War IIIn June 1952, a woman was murdered by an obsessed colleague in a hotel in the South Kensington district of London. Her name was Christine Granville. That she died young was perhaps unsurprising; that she had survived the Second World War was remarkable.The daughter of a feckless Polish aristocrat and his wealthy Jewish wife, Granville would become one of Britain's most daring and highly decorated special agents. Having fled to Britain on the outbreak of war, she was recruited by the intelligence services and took on mission after mission. She skied over the hazardous High Tatras into occupied Poland, served in Egypt and North Africa, and was later parachuted behind enemy lines into France, where an agent's life expectancy was only six weeks. Her courage, quick wit, and determination won her release from arrest more than once, and saved the lives of several fellow officers—including one of her many lovers—just hours before their execution by the Gestapo. More importantly, the intelligence she gathered in her espionage was a significant contribution to the Allied war effort, and she was awarded the George Medal, the OBE, and the Croix de Guerre.Granville exercised a mesmeric power on those who knew her. In The Spy Who Loved, acclaimed biographer Clare Mulley tells the extraordinary history of this charismatic, difficult, fearless, and altogether extraordinary woman.

    4TB Sleek, Fast, & Easy

    I purchased the 4TB Seagate GoFlex Desk external drive with the intent of consolidating all my media files onto a single central drive. Straight out of the box, impressions were good. The newer generation drive offers a sleeker high gloss alternative to the previous Seagate Desk models. The drive comes equipped with a USB 3.0 base dock, which features five white LEDs on the front to illustrate power as well as indicate the capacity used on the drive in 25% increments. In addition, it also comes with the AC power adapter and a 4 foot USB 3.0 cord, which is significantly more convenient than the 1 1/2 foot cords that were supplied with my 1TB Seagate GoFlex Ultra Portable Drives.Right out of the box I plugged in to my Windows 7 laptop, had the drivers automatically installed, and was off and running in about 30 seconds. Simple enough. Actual available space on the drive (due to conversion) is about 3.63 TB, which was an expected reduction.. but is worth noting for... 4/5 Chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Drive with One Understandable Flaw

    Because of some early negative reviews from Amazon users, and what I'm pretty sure is a computer rendering of the product instead of a photograph, I was initially a little reluctant about this drive. But I've had a lot of very good experiences with Seagate, so I bought it. I'm glad I did.The build quality is nice. The enclosure is actually really slick. I do prefer the look of a thin, USB powered, 2.5" external, but in the world of 3.5" drives this is total design win.It performs about as expected, if not better. I'm currently still using USB 2.0, but the initial burst on this thing is crazy high, and it (very) gradually slows down to my typical transfer rate. This is more true with a single large file than many small files. But its overall performance has me really excited about installing a USB 3.0 card in my system.The Bad? Well, I bought this to be a media drive, and it "sleeps" after a relatively short period of inactivity. I want my... 4/5 Beard/// - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Currently the best price for a drive this powerful--anywhere.

    I had purchased a WD Elements 1.5TB external hard drive less than a year ago, but my iMac's start-up disc kept crying out for more space. So I decided to go to an additional drive, except with a capacity of 2TB's or more. I would have been happy to go with another WD Elements drive--were it not for prices double or triple what I paid 10-11 months ago. Then I noticed buzz on the internet about Amazon's low price for the Seagate Expansion Drive 3TB. While reading Amazon reviews, however, I couldn't help but be alarmed by the complaints of numerous recent owners of the "Expansion" model. As a result, I was about to settle on a lower-capacity WD drive when I came upon this Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB drive, which Amazon was showing for a mere "dime" more than the Seagate Expansion drive. After reading positive reviews for this particular GoFlex at MacWorld and Cnet, I was sold. Perhaps the Expansion model has slightly smaller dimensions--but certainly too small to matter.

    Well worth the wait

    As this unit is not available in Australia it took a long time to source the Thunderbolt adapter. In order to get the best out of my 27" iMac i5, I decided some time ago to get a Thunderbolt HD, but found the cost of the Thunderbolt drives available to be far to expensive for me. After receiving the adapter from amazon and the purchase of the Thunderbolt cable I also decided to invest in a SSD. The combination of the Thunderbolt adapter plus the SSD gave me performance I could only describe as awesome. Im using the SSD and the adapter as a external startup drive, my internal drive is used for my data. I have had no issues at all. I'm a very "happy chappy" thanks to the Seagate Thunderbolt adapter combined with the SSD. Now, if the SSD manufacturers could hurry up and reduce the cost and increase the size so that everything can be contained on the SSD, I would be as happy as a "pig in poo". I have several SATA drives without enclosures, so they can now perform as Thunderbolt drives... 5/5 erikjorg - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Thunderbolt (Grease Slapper)

    THis is the FASTEST external drive I have ever used! I stream video and music at home and it usually hangs several times during playback. Not anymore. THis is EXPENSIVE, but Faster than Hectors pup grabbing a cheese sandwich off the kitchen counter, (This means FAST) DId I mention that it's expensive! It is AND the cable cost's about 1/3 the price of the adapter itself. All together the adapter and cable cost was almost twice the price of my new 3 Terabyte Seagate drive itself. Did I mention that it's FAST? I am glad I got the one with the extra connector built in so I can daisy chain it (when I get my Back Pension) and get another 50 dollar 1meter cable. It's like 70 something for a 3 meter one. Did I mention that you can daisy chain these things to a Monitor, Hard Drive or anything else that has the "Thunderbolt connector? All in all it's SCREAMING FAST! I wish the price weren't so dear, but there ya go. It IS made for a MAC ya know and they are worse that SONY USED to be back... 5/5 L.

One for my seagate GoFlex desk 2TB to replace the USB 2.0 adapter. And one one for my seagate GoFlex Desk 3TB drive to replace the USB 3.0 adapter. I could never get the USB 3.0 to work with my Mac Pro mid 2010 edition.I wanted to "simplify" things by swapping both these external drives to thunderbolt and thought these should work.I connected everything up as instructed, but the drives were not seen by the Mac. The STAE122 has now power indication LEDs, so I can't be sure they were getting power, but the adapters did feel warm. It could be bad thunderbolt cables, but I bought two seperate cables, and neither worked. Also, The drives could not be heard to spin up when connected to these adapters and power. The do when connected to the adapters that came with them.The seller, BLINQ has been great and is taking the product back.

    50/50 chance 1 TB STAC1000101 will work

    Bought one of these at Best Buy, the other at OfficeMax around Labor Day taking advantage of price match & deals.I have a new Dell XPS 8300, Windows 7 64-bit OS, I5-2400 CPU & 8GB of ram. The drives are connected to a Buffalo Tech USB 3.0 PCI-E card with two ports.Drive #1 (made in China) bought at OfficeMax screamed out of the gates in file transfers from SATA3 & SATA2 internal drives in my computer via USB 3.0. I transferred a single 6 GB file in less than a minute. Transferred the same size file from an external SATA2 Hitachi using an eSata cable out to my Dell in just slightly more time (1:08).However, the more files and varying sizes you transfer at one time does affect (slows) performance speed. So there is some give & take here and perhaps that is to be expected.Drive goes to "sleep" and comes out without any of the other reported problems you may have read.BTW # 1: I have disabled all of the installed software that came... 4/5 late night fan (los angeles) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Serious problems with the 3TB USB 3 GoFlex Drive

    I bought 3 at the same time thinking that what can be wrong!I was able to copy 2.5 TB from a friend drive to one of these 3 drives. It took about 2 days but this was very fast because it took 2.5 days when I copied the same to a 3TB WD drive.I was able to use the first drive for karaoke once in a while in the first 2 months. Then suddenly I could no longer see the drive in Windows (This PC has Windows 7, 32-bit). Since then I could never get the drive to work except for a single time when it was recognized but hung quickly while a video file was being played. At that time, I couldn't shut down Windows without unplugging the drive power. All other times, I could see the left most LED on but the drive did not even seem to run.For the second drive, I wanted to use it to back up a 0.5 TB system image of another PC that had Windows 7 64-bit.
