|Title:||The Diamond Smugglers|
|Description:||A major campaign against the greatest smuggling racket in the world—the smuggling of diamonds from Africa, to the tune of some ten million pounds a year—has just been completed. It took three years. Paris was involved and Antwerp, Beirut, Freetown, Johannesburg—and Moscow. How this underground battle was waged is the greatest spy story since the war.
All the facts have come into the hands of Ian Fleming, who has been in Africa with the secret agent chiefly responsible for penetrating the international smuggling network, and has written his true story. [Suggest a different description.]
