GREENMANTLE - John Buchan
The second adventure involving Richard Hannay, the hero from 'The 39 Steps'.
This story is set during the Great War and Hannay volunteers with two associates to travel to occupied territory to uncover a plot that could see Britain loose the war.
The language is old fashioned and many today will laugh at the idea of King and Country and 'honour' but this is an excellent old fashioned adventure yarn, a forebear of Indiana Jones. Great fun. (Published 1916)
