This was an amazing book for any Hemingway fan. Although non fiction it's written like any great spy novel. A must read.

An extraordinary life by an extraordinary person. This book follows the role that Hemingway played during the Spanish civil war, in the the subsequent battle between the Allies and the Axis and in the the follow up Cold War. The author does show the good and the bad traits that Hemingway possessed without any sugarcoating and he does give his sources as many times as possible, making the story more believable and credible.
I would recommend this book to any big Hemingway fan that would like to get a glimpse on the life experiences that resulted in the masterpieces that Hemingway has written.

This is an amazingly insightful book, I've read many Hemingway autobiographies. some broad stroke and some more focussed on a single part of his life and how it affected the whole. This slots in perfectly with those and is a fine addition to any scholar of Hemingway.
The book is also a compelling story, some sticking power is required when the narrative halts briefly to fit in the great number of names, dates and facts contained in this impressive work.
To conclude, the book is great whether you're a stone cold devourer of anything Hemingway, a Hemingway scholar, or just like real life stories of spying, danger and intrigue.
Can't recommend it enough.
