About this product
- DescriptionPaul Dukes was sent into Russia in 1918, shortly after the Bolshevik Revolution. His role was to keep the British spy networks in place during the Red Terror , when the Cheka secret police were killing large numbers of opponents of the communist regime. Dukes operated under a variety of covers, the most daring of which was as a member of the Cheka itself. On his return the British government publicised his role to prove their case against the Bolsheviks, knighting him publicly and awarding him the Victoria Cross.
- Author BiographyPaul Dukes was a British writer and MI6 officer. He was knighted by King George V who called Dukes the 'greatest of all soldiers'. He remains the only man ever knighted for spying.
