Greenmantle is great

by Terhel on Sep 6, 2007

This is a famous novel , adventure and spy in the Near East in 1915/16, when the nearly finished Ottoman Empire became the target of German push towards the East (Drang nach Osten). In the novel, there is an attempt to start a Holy War and seize the Ottoman territories against the ambitions of Russia and Great Britain. Four British spies are given the task to find about that Holy War and its mysterious inspirators, The author, John Buchan, was a British official and knew a lot about the undergoings then, and TE Lawrence, then posted in Cairo, said that there is more than a flavor of truth in Greenmantle. In its literary category,it is absolutely fascinating and I warmly recommend it. The historical background can be found in P.Hopkirk "On secret service East of Constantinople".
