    Mission to Tashkent PDF ¼ Mission to PDF/EPUB or ñ eBook franzbielmeier.de mission kindle, tashkent epub, Mission to pdf, Mission to Tashkent PDF/EPUBThis is a great travel book and also a great history book It's an extraordinary narrative of Bailey's time in Central Asia at the end of the first world war but also significantly during the Russian revolution The first half of the book gives a fascinating insight into how the revolution affected the lives of the people on its periphery 2000 miles from the centreBailey never describes himself as a spy but that is certainly how the Bolshevik authorities saw him We follow him through the tangled life he led in Tashkent sleeping in a different house every night to avoid their searches When he eventually escapes Tashkent his story is a fascinating tale of hardship and survival in the desert as he makes his way with his small group to the safety of PersiaThree times he loses the notes

    Mission to Tashkent PDF ¼ Mission to PDF/EPUB or ñ eBook franzbielmeier.de mission kindle, tashkent epub, Mission to pdf, Mission to Tashkent PDF/EPUBDon't you hate it when you infiltrate the enemies spy service and then they send you to find and arrest yourself? Well that really happened to this British diplomat who spent a significant amount of time dodging the Bolsheviks in Teshkent who probably would have killed him if they caught him It's great being reminded about the horrors of communism every once and again as it's easy to forget how terrible it must be to live under such social agony For instance he mentioned a couple who were arrested He was sentenced to three years in prison for saying something negative about the state The wife was sentenced to a year in jail for failing to denounce him when he said it How would you like to live in a society like that? This takes place from 1918 to 1921ish

    Mission to Tashkent PDF ¼ Mission to PDF/EPUB or ñ eBook franzbielmeier.de mission kindle, tashkent epub, Mission to pdf, Mission to Tashkent PDF/EPUBI happened upon this book while scouring the library for background reading before a trip to Uzbekistan It's a wild swashbuckling and apparently genuine double and triple agent first person spy thriller ranging far and wide across the shifting boundaries of the British Empire A bit dated in language but once you get past that it's good fun
