9781849546522: Go Spy the Land: Being the Adventures of IK8 of the British Secret Service (Dialogue Espionage Classics)

Before espionage entered the era of modern technology, there was the age of George Alexander Hill: a time of swashbuckling secret agents, swordsticks, and secret assignations with deadly female spies. The daring escapades of some of the first members of Britain's secret service are revealed in this account of perilous adventure and audacious missions in imperial and revolutionary Russia. First published in 1932, this lost classic offers fascinating portraits of a world unfathomable to those growing up against a backdrop of cyber espionage, and of true-life characters whose exploits were so extraordinary that they have entered the realm of legend.

George Alexander Hill worked for the British secret service in the Balkans and Russia during the First World War and in the immediate aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution. He operated alongside Sidney Reilly, the so-called Ace of Spies’, collecting intelligence and sabotaging both German and Bolshevik operations. Kim Philby, who worked alongside him during the Second World War described him as jolly George Hill’ and said he was one of the few living Englishmen who had actually put sand in axle boxes’. He died in 1968.

Review :

"A splendid book both as a ripping read and an important historical document in its own right." Steve Earles
