Robert Baden-Powell's memories of some of his espionage operations between the 1880s and the outbreak of the First World War. AUTHOR: Robert Baden-Powell was born in 1857 and is probably best remembered as the hero of the siege of Mafeking in 1899/1900 during the Boer War and as the man who started the Scout and Guide Movements. He wrote many books over the course of his life, some of which he illustrated himself. This book was first published in February 1915, seven months after the outbreak of the First World War, and is a collection of anecdotes and memories about the work of spies, based on his own experiences in Africa, Europe and Asia.

ABRIDGER: Michael Bartlett is a writer with much radio, television and stage plays to his credit, though perhaps he is best known for writing The Archers for Radio 4 and Rainbow for Thames Television. He is also a producer and has directed plays, readings and documentaries for the BBC, for commercial radio and for audio publication. READER: Michael Cochrane has appeared in many plays in the theatre, on television and on radio as well as in a number of films. He has also read many audio books, including the Gold Award winning Lord Edgware Dies. His recent television appearances include General Simmerson in Sharpe's Challenge and Judge Hynes in Wire in the Blood. He also plays Oliver Sterling in The Archers on Radio 4. MUSIC: The piano music, Baden-Powell Schottische, is played by Alexandra White.

    " A quick read, this book relates a few basic hints as to how to be a good spy and tells of a few of Baden-Powell's experiences. I would have liked more background of his adventures and more follow-up. But it was still fun to read. "
