Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This engrossing memoir recounts British intelligence agent Smiley's two missions in 1943 and 1944 to Albanian resistance fighters. First with communist partisans and then with nationalist and monarchist groups, he helped organize and arm the Albanians against Italian and German occupation forces. By late 1943 the Albanian groups were falling into internecine civil war. Though Smiley professes indifference to politics, his sympathies are clearly with the anticommunists. This overly brief account, replete with high adventure, is told laconically. The policy of the London authorities and the murderous strife among Albanian factions are passed over, but various escapades with the guerrillas, by turns tragic, ludicrous, and touching, come wonderfully to life. Recommended for public and academic libraries. James B. Street, Santa Cruz P.L., Cal.
