"Johann Heinrich Amadeus de Graaf, known as Johnny all his life, was born in Germany in 1894 and died in Ontario, Canada in 1980. That he lived as long as he did is miraculous, considering that he spent many years as a double agent - pretending to work for Soviet intelligence while really functioning as an operative for Britain's MI6. A gripping tale of espionage during a critical period of the political history of the twentieth century." - dust jacket. Small spot of soiling to fore-edge otherwise clean and unmarked with light wear. Dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. A quality copy of this fascinating life story.
