About the Book
The name Sidney Reilly is associated with the Great War, British intelligence, and the Bolshevik uprising in 1917. He has been called the “Ace of Spies”; the facts of his life are difficult to find and shrouded in mystery largely by his own design. Newspapers and biographical works have gushed superlatives concerning his efficiency as a British agent.
The names of Sidney Reilly and Mata Hari are synonymous with twentieth century espionage. Who they really were and what they did during the Great War has intrigued and mystified the public for decades. This color-illustrated essay investigates these two legendary figures along with other Great War spies. 8x10 inch tradebook, color, 38 pages.
