Booknews
A reprint of the 1933 biography of the WWI German spy, Franz Dagobert Johannes Rintelen (1878-1949), with a scholarly introduction that sketches Rintelen's activities and details the book's production history. The text describes the spy's training and his subsequent exploits in the US from 1914 through 1915, his eventual capture by the British, and his imprisonment and trials at the hands of the British and the Americans. The introduction fills in the rest of Rintelen's life, including his abandonment of his home country before WWII, his friendship with his former British WWI captor, his desire to fight the Nazis, and his last years in London. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
