KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the other side has been told many times. This is the story of a German who served through most of the war in the German Secret Service in England. Trained from boyhood for the work, he was prepared when the need came, to play many parts, many nationalities, many walks of life. This tells all that can be told of the methods used, the systems for getting material out of the country, the tie-up between Germany and the Irish, the true causes of Kitchener's death, the contacts with other spies, the scheme to sink the British Navy which resulted in his capture -- and which would have resulted in his death if his English wife had not used her knowledge as a threat over the authorities, and got him released. Well--told and interesting reading, especially for those who have been reading the Landau books (All's Fair, etc.)
