Very interesting read
Could this have been the original inspiration for James Bond? Maybe, but not probable. However, Eddie Chapman is someone you admire for his incredible bravery and pull for throughout the book, but wouldn't trust with your personal possessions. I have always wondered how countries recruited spys and double spys during wars and other internal crises. The book is very well researched and fascinating. Some of this information is only recently discovered. I have never heard these World War II stories.
