Beschreibung des Verlags
Many terms were bestowed upon the mysterious Fritz Duquesne throughout his colorful life, but perhaps the most fitting ever attributed to him was: "the most dangerous prisoner to have ever lived."
But before this Boer warrior-turned-spy reached the heights of infamy that awarded him such acclaim, Fritz Joubert Duquesne lived a life of adventure that many people wouldn’t experience in a hundred lifetimes. From a young age, Fritz harboured a burning resentment toward the British army, stemming from the brutal treatment suffered by his family during the Anglo-Boer wars.
Fritz vowed revenge against the nation that took from him those he held dear, leading to his own enrollment in the military of whichever side fought opposite the British forces.
Through complex prison escapes, destructive acts of sabotage, and heroic feats that are even too far-fetched for fiction, Fritz Duquesne exacted revenge in the most daring, unbelievable, and all-round theatrical manner possible.
His life crossed oceans and continents, assuming multiple aliases and personas along the way. Eventually, Fritz Duquesne found himself a crucial cog in the Nazi machine, ultimately being responsible for the largest spy ring ever uncovered in the United States.
