Eastern Approaches

Fitzroy Maclean

1949 Reprint Society 1951

Recommendation: Nick

An amazing first section, when the author is a diplomat in Moscow in the late 1930s. He witnesses a Stalinist trial - it really is just like in Animal Farm! Then to the desert war, where Countess Ranfurly's accounts provide a background; and finally to Yugoslavia under Tito. A combination of having visited Yugoslvia (Croatia) and having read the Ranfurly diaries (link) made this all particularly interesting.

December 1999
