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.

Amazing story, excellently written. Journey from the Stalinist show trials to remotest Central Asia. Follow that with the SAS in N Africa and fighting in Yugoslavia with all that was a part of that mess. Great reading. Read full review
Review: Eastern ApproachesUser Review - Martin - Goodreads
Maybe the best memoir of WWII... and i've read about 300... and a great explanation of Yugoslavia. Don't miss it- they say this guy was the basis for James Bond! Read full review
