The Cambridge Five was a ring of spies in the UK who passed information to the Soviet Union during World War II and into the early 1950s.
It has been suggested they may also have passed Soviet disinformation to the Nazis.
The ring included Kim Philby (cryptonym: Stanley), Donald Duart Maclean (cryptonym: Homer), Guy Burgess (cryptonym: Hicks), Anthony Blunt (cryptonym: Johnson), and John Cairncross (cryptonym: Liszt).
Several other persons have been accused of being members over the years.
Their name refers to the fact that all members became committed Communists while attending Cambridge University in the 1930s.
