As a young army officer, the founder of the Boy Scout movement served in military intelligence in Malta. In this book, written in 1915, he describes his adventures, discusses German espionage before and during the First World War, and outlines the basic techniques of spycraft: codes and disguises; how to observe troop movements and evade sentries; and how to conceal secret information in apparently innocent drawings of butterflies and leaves.
