The Ingenious Mr. Pyke

Geoffrey Pyke was an inventor, adventurer, journalist, polymath, and the unlikely hero of both world wars. After narrowly escaping death in a German prison camp, he built an aircraft carrier out of reinforced ice, devised a plan to help the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, and launched a private attempt to prevent the Second World War by sending a group of agents into Nazi Germany disguised as professional golfers. And he may have been a Russian spy. This is the untold story of an enigmatic genius who changed the face of war forever.
