Eastern Approaches, Paperback


Fitztroy Maclean was one of the real-life inspirations for super-spy James Bond.

After adventures in Soviet Russia before the war, Maclean fought with the SAS in North Africa in 1942.

There he specialised in hair-raising commando raids behind enemy lines, including the daring and outrageous kidnapping of the German Consul in Axis-controlled Iraq.

Maclean's extraordinary adventures in the Western Desert and later fighting alongside Tito's partisans in Yugoslavia are blistering reading and show what it took to be a British hero who broke the mould...
