Greville Wynne was a UK electrical engineer recruited to MI5 just before WWII. He soon became an intermediary for a high-ranking Soviet spy who sold secrets to British intelligence and ultimately provided key intel that ended the Cuban Missile Crisis. Ultimately they were exposed by a double agent – Wynne was imprisoned in Russia, his Soviet contact (codenamed Ironbark) was executed. Wynne was ultimately released in exchange for the spy Gordon Lonsdale in 1964 – the exchange taking place in No Man’s Land dividing East and West Berlin.
