About this book
The true story of Geoffrey Pyke, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. Pyke was an inventor, escapee, campaigner, war correspondent, unlikely hero of both world wars and is seen today as the father of the US Special Forces. But there was another side to him, he may have been a Soviet spy. From the author of "Misadventure In The Middle East".
There is no reason why you should have heard of Geoffrey Pyke. After his suicide in 1948 he was described as one of the great geniuses of his time, to rank alongside Einstein, yet he remains today, as The Times put it, 'one of the most original if unrecognised figures' of the twentieth century.
