The adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle : a biography by Russell Miller( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Conan Doyle remains one of our favorite writers; his work is read with affection--and sometimes obsession--the world over, but his life was no less fascinating than his fiction. Conan Doyle grew up in relative poverty in Edinburgh. He struggled both as a young doctor and in his early attempts to sell short stories, having only limited success until Sherlock Holmes propelled him to worldwide fame. Beyond writing, Conan Doyle led a full life, participating in the Boer War, falling in love with another woman while his wife was dying of tuberculosis, campaigning against injustice, and converting to Spiritualism, a move that would bewilder friends and fans. Russell Miller is the first biographer to have been granted unlimited access to Conan Doyle's private correspondence, and also makes use of the writer's personal papers and the Richard Lancelyn Green archive, the world's most comprehensive collection of Conan Doyle material.--From publisher description

Magnum : fifty years at the front line of history by Russell Miller( Book )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of Magnum is the story of its photographers - some of the most talented, brave, and resourceful in the world -- including Eve Arnold, Rene Burri, Cornell Capa, Bruce Davidson, Ernst Haas, Mary Ellen Mark, Susan Meiselas, Inge Morath, James Nachtwey, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, Sebastiao Salgado, and Dennis Stock. Magnum follows them on assignment -- including encounters with soldiers, bodyguards, and visa troubles -- and into the offices of Magnum, with all the moments of inspiration and inevitable frictions of brilliant and opinionated people working together. Fifty years after its founding, Magnum remains a testament to the vision of its founders, and membership in it is still the most coveted badge of honor and prestige that a photographer can attain. Full of wonderful stories, heroic feats, and human drama, Magnum is a dramatic, sweeping portrait of the worlds greatest photo house and its times."--Jacket

"A wealthy playboy, incorrigible womaniser and dedicated gambler, Dusko Popv was one of Germany's most trusted spies, one of Britain's most successful double agents, and, some say, the inspiration for James Bond." "With full access to FBI and MI5 records, along with private family papers, his incredible story can now be told authoritatively for the first time. Recruited by the Abwehr in 1940, 27-year-old Popov immediately offered his services to the British. His wry codename was Tricycle."

Codename Tricycle : the playboy double agent by Russell Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A wealthy playboy, incorrigible womaniser and dedicated gambler, Dusko Popv was one of Germany's most trusted spies, one of Britain's most successful double agents, and, some say, the inspiration for James Bond." "With full access to FBI and MI5 records, along with private family papers, his incredible story can now be told authoritatively for the first time. Recruited by the Abwehr in 1940, 27-year-old Popov immediately offered his services to the British. His wry codename was Tricycle." "Throughout the war he fed the Germans with a constant stream of military 'intelligence', all vetted by MI5, and came to be viewed as their most important and reliable agent in Britain. But when, in June 1941, he was ordered by the Abwehr to the United States to report on the defences at Pearl Harbour, J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, failed to heed his warnings, distrusting all spies and detesting Popov in particular, whom he considered to be a 'moral degenerate'. Facing the danger of exposure, arrest and execution on a daily basis, Tricycle went on to build up a network known as the Yugoslav Ring, which not only fed a stream of false information to Berlin but also supplied vital intelligence to the Allies on German rocketry, strategy and security." "After the war Dusko Popov was granted British citizenship and awarded an OBE. The presentation was made, appropriately, in the cocktail bar at the Ritz."--BOOK JACKET
