5.0 out of 5 stars the damascus letter, 17 April 2011
This is one of the few books that does not come with anyone praising the book and author, using it as a selling point. After recently reading two John lecarre books, this was a much easier read, and a pleasure also. In fact if i had one fault it would be that i read it too quickly.

A realistically plotted storyline with characters you can relate to.
WELL WORTH READING, BUY IT, AND ENJOY !!

4.0 out of 5 stars great read, 6 Aug. 2010
Excellent book describing the life of Leo Marks working in the SOE.
Gives a good insight into the thinking within the department and inter office politics etc at the time. Very similar in approach to the memories of Charles Fraser Smith (the real Q in bond). A thick book ~ 600 pages but easy to read and keeps your attention. Does not blind you with the maths around code breaking etc . A remarkable achievment by Leo Marks considering his young age at the time (early 20's).Recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 6 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Ultimate Spy (Hardcover)
Although on the face of it this book may look like a childrens dorling kingsley publication, it is an excellent book, and well worth having in ones spy book collection. The biggest plus is the excellent full colour photographs used throughout. Lots of updated information from the previous printing.
Recomended purchase definately.

5.0 out of 5 stars The basic bible for identifying moths, 21 May 2009
I was recommende this book while at a Moth workshop recently and can see why it is the amateur Moth enthusiast's bible when identifying. An excellent field guide.
