An Italian Spy in China
This is another interesting book I found. It is again set in the 1930s. The book is written by an Italian man who was in the service of the Japanese Intelligence service.
The author in his younger days. The author used to work for a northern warlord. The warlord was a kind man. Once the Japanese took over north-eastern China, they blackmailed the author to work for them.
The author’s adventures
The author’s further adventures
The Japanese get their trade office to issue a letter to the author. He fronts as a businessman.
There were other agents trying to finish off the author. Interestingly, it was a Sikh assassin. China was a nest of spies those days. Agents and mercenaries from all over the world were here.
Vespa’s book gives an insight into the Japanese administration in China. It was not a centralized administration as one would think. Everyone was doing their own things. Here he is talking of one Japanese officer who was concerned about the misdeeds of his colleagues.
The officer could not do much.
Another book from the late 1930s warning every one of Japan’s naughty plans.
