Eddie Chapman was a womaniser, blackmailer and safecracker. He was also a great hero - the most remarkable double agent of the Second World War. Chapman became the only British national ever to be awarded an Iron Cross for his work for the Reich. He was also the only German spy ever to be parachuted into Britain twice. But it was all an illusion: Eddie fooled the Germans in the same way he conned his victims in civilian life. He was working for the British all along. Until now, the full story of Eddie Chapman's extraordinary exploits has never been told, thwarted by the Official Secrets Act. Now at last all the evidence has been released, including Eddie's MI5 files, and a complete account of what he achieved is told in this enthralling book.

Oct 15, 2007 Zelda rated it really liked it Recommends it for: history / war buffs I thought this book was very well written and very interestingA movie in the 1960's was produced, but failed at the box office mainly because Chapman thoroughly disliked the scriptThe printed list of what his parents were ordered to take east included six pairs of underpants and two pairs of waterproof shoesIt's not your normal biography, as it was a long time coming because of the British governmentNotes
