The Story

Indy finds that he must enlist the help of Habsburg royalty when he embarks on a dangerous diplomatic mission through enemy-held Europe into the palace of Emperor Karl of Austria. Endangering his life and the lives of his royal charges, Indy gambles all in a desperate attempt to bring the war more quickly to an end.

Then, in chaos-ridden Russia, Indy finds his espionage work once again threatening lives when he infiltrates a group of young Bolsheviks and begins to sympathize with their plight. As the country lurches toward revolution, Indy finds himself torn between loyalty to his friends and his military duty.


Famous people encounters:

Prince Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma
Officer in the Belgian army and the intermediary for his brother-in-law, Emperor Charles I of Austria-Hungary, in Charles' secret attempt to negotiate peace with the Allies in 1917. The effort came to nothing, but in 1918 the French government published a letter written by Charles to Sixtus which caused acute embarrassment to the Austrian government.

Count Ottokar Czernin
Foreign minister of Austria-Hungary (1916-18) whose efforts to disengage his country from its participation in World War I failed to prevent the dissolution of the Habsburg monarchy in 1918.
Emperor Karl I of Austria
He was the last Emperor of Austria, the last King of Hungary and Bohemia and the last monarch of the Habsburg Dynasty. Some historians have seen Karl as a brave and honourable figure who tried as emperor-king to halt World War I.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
The founder of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks), inspirer and leader of the Bolshevik Revolution (1917), and the architect, builder, and first head (1917-24) of the Soviet state.
