Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic true adventure story of a man who, by the pen, sword, and diplomatic pouch, influenced some of the most significant events of our era. Fitzroy Maclean recounts his extraordinary adventures in Soviet Central Asia; in the Western Desert, where he specialized in hair-raising commando raids behind enemy lines; and with Tito's partisans during the last months of the German occupation of Yugoslavia. An enthralling narrative brilliantly told.

Synopsis:

An account of a young diplomat's time in Russia before World War II including his travels through Eastern Russia and Siberia. It includes his encounters with the people and his historical descriptions as well as material on his transfer to Cairo and the war in the Western desert.
