The Great Impersonation.

by E. Phillips. Oppenheim

Publication: 1932

First paperback edition. Pocket Book 224. Fine, unread copy in pictorial wrappers. Set in southern Africa a year before the onset of the World War I, Englishman Sir Everard Dominey, his health broken down by rough living and whiskey during a self-imposed exile, stumbles half-dead into the camp of German Baron von Ragastein. The two men are near look-alikes and knew each other back at Eton. Von Ragastein, an officer in the German army and an espionage agent, devises a plan to substitute himself for Everard Dominey and to return to England to further German interests. Great read!
