Large Format for easy reading. By the soldier, writer and founder of the world Scouting movement. Recounts Baden-Powell's experiences in espionage during his military career, and talks about 'the sport of spying'. Details some of his adventures scouting out military emplacements in foreign countries, establishing a cover and collecting information. Also details the different types of spies. Baden-Powell shows that spying is a craft that can be learned, but also requires a certain intelligence and ability to swiftly improvise and adapt to situations in the field. The book acts as a great introduction to the field-craft of being a spy. Illustrated with the author's own sketches.
