A very good read about someone I had never heard of but who worked in the British embassy in Madrid through the War years. Lots of better-known characters come and go in the story and it is all very well written by the subject's son. A recommended book.

As a relative of the author (and therefore also the protagonist) I have to admit to a bias, however the book is a wonderful read by any standard. It contains a lot of well-researched information about Spain during the early Franco years and the politics of the region during World War 2. The politics of my illustrious relative seem suspect on occasion, but all is reported with great honesty and frankness in a revealing portrait of both man and country.

A really informative and enjoyable book.Living in Spain with reminders of Franco still evident made it even more poignant and believable

An excellent account of part played by British Embassy in Madrid during WW2 to keep Spain neutral.

A gripping true story about a period I knew little about. If you think Spain is just about sunshine and beaches, this book brings out the darker side of its recent history.

Not easy to get involved in the writing. Found it a bit rambling & disjointed.
