This text is virtually illegible for typographicalerrors. missing pages, and paragraphs which trail off without completion. where did they find the text they copied? My mother's hardbound, bought in May 1940, has all its pages intact! The one star was for an attempt to present it as a NOOK book at all--but it still was a grave disappointment.

I first read this book when i was about 10 years old. I found the e-version just yesterday, and read it again. In three weeks, I will be 68 years old, the book took me back. It was great fun to read again in spite of the many misspelled and missong parts. I suspect the errors are from scanning the book and not taking the tme to use a spell check on the result.

One of the great spy books of the Second World War. I appreciate Rue Morgue Press for re-releasing these lost treasures and only wish they could have re-published all of the Tommy Hambledon opus.

Ranging in time from WWI 'til well into the Cold War era ["Drink to Yesterday" , "Alias Uncle Hugo"] the adventures of Tommy Hambledon, a British intelligence agent were very popular in both Europe and the U.S. Co written by an actual British Intelligence agent (Coles) and a female neighbor (Manning). While dealing with often grim topics like war and murder, the deftness in description of the colorful supporting cast and villains, a lively sense of humour, the bizarre plot twists, and the irrepressible Tommy himself result in a light hearted fast moving series. This book is a sequel to "Drink to Yesterday" which was set in WW I . Tommy spent that war as a British spy behind enemy lines posing as a Dutchman. At the end of that book he got an almighty bang on the head while trying to escape by sea, so as this book opens our hero has amnesia and has hsd for some years. It is arounf 1933 and Adolf Hitler is rising to power and making plans to annex Austria and resdy the new enlarged Germanic empire to invade everybody. Tommy regains his memory in the midst of these
