Escape to Adventure

By Fitzroy Maclean
Little, Brown, 1950

Aptly described as an extrovert T. E. Lawrence, Brigadier Maclean has written an absorbing account of his experiences in Moscow, Soviet Asia, Persia, North Africa and Jugoslavia. Dominating the book is the story of his parachute mission to Marshal Tito in 1943, but those interested in the Soviet purges should read his masterly description of the Bukharin trial.
