Overview

I have been many things, in Britain, Canada, Europe, and elsewhere; and of course my father wanted me to be an accoutnant. But now in Paris, in Rome, in Florence, in Berlin, in Vienna - in fact, over half the face of Europe, from the Pyrenees to the Russian frontier - I am now known as "The Count's Chauffeur." And the count is not just Italian gentry: he is a swindler. And I am his aide-de-camp. . . .

About the Author

William Tufnell Le Queux (1864 - 1927) was an Anglo-French journalist and writer. He was also a diplomat (honorary consul for San Marino), a traveller (in Europe, the Balkans and North Africa), a flying buff who officiated at the first British air meeting at Doncaster in 1909 and a wireless pioneer who broadcast music from his own station long before radio was generally available; his claims regarding his own abilities and exploits, however, were usually exaggerated. His best-known works are the anti-French and anti-Russian invasion fantasy The Great War in England in 1897 (1894) and the anti-German invasion fantasy The Invasion of 1910 (1906), the latter of which was a phenomenal bestseller.

A fun Book that ended too soon. Reads like many stories from that period and feels somewhat dated, but the use of era's jargon doesn't diminish the quality of the stories. I would recommend it.
