Hi friends! How was your weekend? Mine was great! I had chocolate birthday cake AND strawberry cheesecake yesterday at my mom's.🎂 😊Tomorrow I turn 48!
I would like to offer this large Adam and Eve Reproduction Sampler chart by Robin Laukhuf as a giveaway for all of my follower friends.
Maxwell Knight was a paradox. A jazz obsessive and nature enthusiast (he
is the author of the definitive work on how to look after a gorilla),
he is seen today as one of MI5's greatest spymasters, a man who did more
than any other to break up British fascism during the Second World War
-- in spite of having once belonged to the British Fascisti himself. He
was known to his agents and colleagues simply as M, and is rumored to be
the inspiration for the character in the James Bond series.
Knight became a legendary spymaster despite an almost total lack of
qualifications. What set him apart from his peers was a mercurial
ability to transform almost anyone into a fearless secret agent. He was
the first in MI5 to grasp the potential of training female agents.
Agent M is about more than just one man however. In its pages, Hemming
will reveal for the first time in print the names and stories of some
of the men and women recruited by Knight, on behalf of MI5, and then
asked to infiltrate the most dangerous political organizations in
Britain at that time. Until now, their identities have been kept secret
outside MI5. Drawn from every walk of life, they led double lives --
often at great personal cost -- in order to protect the country they
loved. With the publication of this book, it will be possible at last to
celebrate the lives of these courageous and selfless individuals.
Drawing on declassified documents, private family archives, and original interviews, Agent M reveals not just the shadowy world of espionage but a brilliant, enigmatic man at its shadowy center.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends. Thank you for stopping by!
Stitching and praying,
