Summary
This is a biography of Allan Percy Fleming (1912-2001), who was at various times in his life: a teacher, a journalist with the Melbourne Argus and the Brisbane Courier-Mail, an officer in the Australian Imperial Force in World War II and German prisoner of war, the director of a new intelligence agency within the Australian Department of Defence, an Australian trade commissioner in Paris, National Librarian of the National Library of Australia, and director of the Australian government's counter-terrorist Protective Services Coordination Center. The author consistently places Fleming's life in context of the broader sweep of the political and military issues with which Fleming was involved, thus also providing a window into certain aspects of 20th century Australian history.
