Overview

Follows "The Thirty Nine Steps"....
The book opens in November 1915, with Hannay and his friend Sandy convalescing from wounds received at the Battle of Loos. Hannay is summoned to the Foreign Office by Sir Walter Bullivant, a senior intelligence man, who Hannay met and assisted in The Thirty-Nine Steps. Bullivant gives Hannay an outline of the political situation in the Middle East, and hints that the Germans and their Turkish allies are plotting to cause a great uprising throughout the Muslim world, that will throw the whole of the Middle East, India and North Africa into turmoil; Bullivant proposes that Hannay takes on the task of investigating rumours. The only clue he is given is a slip of paper left by a spy, Bullivant's own son, recently killed in the region, bearing the words Kasredin, cancer and v.I.

The slightly stylized grammar and sentence structure is fun and an interesting perspective of the writing of the period. Almost 100 years old but still a a good read. The Victorian/Edwardian setting is conveyed with subtly.

Fantastic, easy to read WWI spy adventure... but this version has some pretty serious issues. At times so many letters are incorrect you almost feel you are reading in code. Also a few unreadable scanned pages. Go ahead and pay the $1 or $2 for a clean version.

Greenmantle was the second of John Buchan's Richard Hannay adventures. Although Hannay is often lumped into spy fiction, the story is more adventure than espionage. Buchan wrote this novel only a few months after the events that frame it took place. The cynicism that has enveloped most spy fiction since the 60s is lacking. Hannay and his band of adventurers risk their necks cheerfully, thinking of God and England. There is more character development than in The Thirty-nine Steps, the first story of the series. The plot still has holes and the characters seem to meet each other by coincidence just when it matters. However, the story has historical and literary value because it was written while WWI was still raging. What is especially noteworthy is Buchan's ability to rise above the anti-German propaganda of the time and even give the Kaiser a favorable cameo. The Muslim elements of the plot seem eerily 21st century a hundred years later.

Scary how prescient Buchan could be - what will happen if the Muslim world rises against the West. Set in Turkey after Gallipoli, and the West's greatest allies are the Russians.
