Book DescriptionBefore 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, Hill's rip-roaring narrative recounts tales of his fellow operatives Arthur Ransome - author of Swallows and Amazons and one of the most effective British spies in Russia - and Sidney Reilly - so-called 'Ace of Spies' and architect of a thwarted plot to assassinate the Bolshevik leadership. Unavailable for decades, this lost classic offers fascinating portraits of a world unfathomable to those growing up against a backdrop of WikiLeaks and cyber espionage, and of true-life characters whose exploits were so extraordinary that they have entered the realm of legend. The best collection of military, espionage, and adventure stories ever told. The Dialogue Espionage Classics series began in 2010 with the purpose of bringing back classic out-of-print spying and espionage tales. From WWI and WWII to the Cold War, D-Day to the SOE, Bletchley Park to the Comet Line this fascinating spy history series brings you the best stories that should never be forgotten.
Editorial ReviewA splendid book both as a ripping read and an important historical document in its own right. Steve Earles
About the AuthorGEORGE 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'.
