Number 70 Berlin: A Classic Read by William Le Queux

Willliam Tufnell Le Queux or more commonly known as William Le Queux was an author, journalist, traveler and a flying buff. He even presided at the first British air meeting held at Doncaster in 1909. He was born in 1864 and was of Anglo-French origin. He was also one of the pioneers of wireless and even used to broadcast songs from his own frequency when the radio wasn't available readily. He is known most for his anti-German novel, The Invasion of 1910, which was published in 1906. His Number 70 Berlin is also representation of his anti-German sentiment.

Number 70 Berlin – A Synopsis

Set in the times of First World War, the book resonates with destruction of everything pro German. It is a thrilling story as well as a propaganda piece. A young lad believes that he has found a German agent. In the meantime, his closest friend, who used to catch spies, dies in mysterious conditions. This leads to wild, frightening allegations and the mystery deepens.

The book is filled with a lot of anti-German rambling. In one section there is a gathering at the house of Lady Betty Kenworthy, where everybody is gossiping about Lady Kenworthy's movement, Anti-Teuton Alliance. This alliance is an organization created by some nationalistic aficionados with an aim to target the hated Germans in every possible way – whether it is by exposing a spy in the midst or to liberate the nation from the baneful influence of Germany by banning the language, boycotting German goods, and discovering and eliminating all the traces of pro-German sentiment.

Other Works of Queux

William Le Queux mostly wrote mystery novels and dealt with themes like war, espionage, battle thrillers, etc. He is also considered a forerunner of the famous spy-author, Ian Fleming. William partnered with Lord Northcliffe, a British publishing magnate and published many serial pulp-fiction detective stories and fantasy warfare stories. Some of his most popular works include The Great War in England in 1897, The Invasion of 1910, Guilty Bonds, The Poisoned Bullet, The Great White Queen, A Secret Service, Devil's Dice, The Eye of Istar, The Bond of Black, Her Majesty's Minister, On the "Polar Star" in the Arctic Sea, The Seven Secrets, As We Forgive Them, Sins of the City, The House of the Wicked, The Secret of the Square, The Great Court Scandal, The Red Room, Fatal Thirteen, Lying Lips, The German Spy, The War of the Nations, The Mysterious Three, The German Spy System From Within, Sant of the Secret Service: Some Revelations of Spies and Spying, Secrets of the Foreign Office, Spies of the Kaiser and The Golden Three.

Number 70 Berlin is a story set in the times of war and conveys anti-German sentiment throughout the storyline. The book is a must-read for every art, culture, history and literature aficionados!
