After the war, "Beetle" Smith served as President Truman's Director of Central Intelligence. In that capacity, he convinced Truman--based on evidence compiled by a CIA counterintelligence officer--that British diplomat "Kim" Philby was a Soviet spy. Truman sent Philby packing, and it cost him his government job. Unfortunately, it was another 10 years before the Brits determined that Philby had been spying for the Russians for nearly 25 years. He fled to Moscow rather than facing trial.
Interesting to note that the Grant given to General Smith has a good bit more drop in the stock than one would find on most British doubles.
