A thoroughly readable book about a character whose life truly was stranger than fiction. A great read even if you are not a fan of War-time histories or intelligence/espionage stories. Macintyre describes a complex, talented, and unconventional person with compassion and clarity. He avoids over-analyzing the personality -- no armchair psychoanalysis -- and simply tells the story, letting the reader muse on the motivations and demons. Macintyre has a knack for finding unusual and compelling slices of history, which he offers to us with infectious curiosity and enthusiasm. Reading one Macintyre book will, inevitably, lead the reader to another.
