My Adventures as a Spy

Overview

It has been difficult to write in peace-time on the delicate subject of spies and spying, but now that the war is in progress and the methods of those much abused gentry have been disclosed, there is no harm in going more fully into the question, and to relate some of my own personal experiences.
Spies are like ghosts-people seem to have had a general feeling that there might be such things, but they did not at the same time believe in them-because they never saw them, and ...
