An excellent, detailed account of a Polish spy active in Germany from 1925 to 1934. Juri de Sosnowski was a controversial figure who made effective use of women agents (hence the legend of “the romantic spy”). Sosnowski was exchanged for German agents captured by the Poles, but was later tried and imprisoned in Warsaw.
