There are some spy stories that are interesting, then there are others like this one, which runs from fighting in India and Burma and WWII to the Berlin Airlift, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Suez. It all starts, though, with fighting in the jungle against the Japanese and this is unflinching in detail.

What sets this narrative apart from plenty of other spy stories, is that Sanderson was in the middle of the major political events of the 20th century, making this both engaging on a personal level and interesting on a global one.
