Über diesen Titel:
What if Britain's decline as a world power and the many errors
of judgement in military, diplomatic and economic policy since the end of
the First World War had been influenced, not so much as a succession of
world events and individual gaffes, as by the sinister machinations of a
motivated individual, dedicated to the destruction of imperial and
John Stonehouse's biography of Charles Baring, scion of an aristocratic
Norfolk family, is a political thriller set against the history of our
century that raises many questions and makes fascinating reading as we see
the transformation of an Eton schoolboy with a social conscience into a
spy. It opens a window into such events Winston Churchill's invasion of
Russia in 1918 about which little has been written. It gives a fascinating
picture of Soviet Russia under Lenin and Trotsky; explains Trotsky's death,
what lay behind the Suez invasion and many puzzling events that took place
under Tory regimes. It is a new kind of spy novel, comparative in its
historical canvas to Howard Spring's classic, Fame in the Spur. Above all,
it is a good story, well told.
