My Life in IntrigueLarge Print - 2015 | Large print edition
For more than forty years, Frederick Forsyth has been writing extraordinary real-world novels of intrigue, from "The Day of the Jackal" on. But what most people don't know is that some of his greatest stories of intrigue have been in his own life. He was the RAF's youngest pilot at the age of 19, barely escaped the wrath of an arms dealer in Hamburg, got strafed by a MiG during the Nigerian Civil War, landed during a bloody coup in Guinea-Bissau (and was accused of helping fund a 1973 coup in Equatorial Guinea). The Stasi arrested him, the Israelis feted him, the IRA threatened him, and a certain attractive Czech secret police agent - well, her actions were a bit more intimate. And that's just for starters.
