The Great Game

On Secret Service in High Asia

Peter Hopkirk

Twice arrested while working as a foreign correspondent, Peter Hopkirk had personal insight into the dangers of operating in political hotspots. This account of the espionage war between Britain and Russia, first published in 1990, traces events over nearly 100 years and recounts the exploits of officers on both sides who braved the lonely passes of Afghanistan to gather intelligence.
