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.

Review: Eastern Approaches

User Review  - Jerôme - Goodreads

My hero before my departue to the war in Yugoslavia in the nineties, a man in the mould of what TE Lawrence was for Arabia and Patrick Leigh Fermor for Greece. When I met him once in Korcula he was different from what I would expected him to be from this book. Read full review
