The autobiography of Hans Ormund Bringolf (1876-1951), a Swiss adventurer who had a very checkered life story. From the dust jacket front flap: ''Here is a picaresque tale, all the more amazing for its truth, the story of an actual Jekyll-Hyde personality, who cast aside a good name, an honorable marriage, and a career for--vallainy! Embassy attache, patrron of pawn-brokers, courtier and lover of princesses in Europe and dishwasher in the Argentine: such were the contradictory ups and downs in the career of this amazing adventurer. One day he had handcuffs on his wrists, the next day he had the Legion of Honor decoration on his coat. His courage in the Great War was the bright side of his sinister shield.'' These are the ''candid confessions of a soldier of fortune and gentleman crook.
