Nine Lives: True Spy Stories from Mata Hari to Kim Philbyby Fitzroy Maclean
Synopses & Reviews
In Nine Lives, Fitzroy Maclean brilliantly tells the true stories of nine remarkable spies. Among them, there is the captivating Mata Hari: who was executed by firing squad for allegedly spying for Germany during World War I; Richard Sorge: leader of the Tokyo Espionage Ring and the man who informed Stalin of the German attack on Russia in 1941 weeks before it happened; and Kim Philby--the "third man"--a prominent member of British Intelligence, a communist and a spy for the KGB. Brimming with drama and adventure, Nine Lives separates myth from reality and vividly brings alive the characters and events that surrounded these nine legendary spies.
One of the classics of spy literature - from the man who was the inspiration for "James Bond."
About the Author
Sir Fitzroy Maclean (1911-1996) served in many capacities during World War II, including Winston Churchill's personal envoy. Diplomat, soldier, statesman, traveller, writer--a true modern hero--Sir Fitzroy was often put forward as the model for his friend Ian Flemings "James Bond."
