Ahead of WWI, a war that was to put the British Navy to its sternest test since Trafalgar, Bywater reveals how he and his fellow agents deceived the enemy to gather vital intelligence on German naval capabilities. Originally written up in 1930 as a series of thrilling articles in the Daily Telegraph, his experiences were soon turned into a bestselling book, with the help of Daily Express journalist H. C. Ferraby. This account is a true classic of espionage and derring-do.

A British journalist and military author, Hector C. Bywater is best known for his 1925 book The Great Pacific War, about a fictional naval conflict between the United States and Japan. He died in 1940.
