    About The Book

    R.S.S. Baden-Powell, who founded the Boy Scouts movement in 1908, was a British military hero during the Boer War and an author, actor, artist, spy, sportsman, and female impersonator. In this absorbing and humane account of Baden-Powell’s extraordinary life, Tim Jeal reveals for the first time the complex figure behind the saintly public mask, showing him to be a man of both dazzling talents and crippling secret fears.

    Reviews of the earlier edition:

    “Baden-Powell’s life story is as rich and engrossing as any of his memorable campfire yarns … a monumental biography.” — Zara Steiner, New York Times Book Review

    “In an age of good biographies, here is one that deserves to be called great … a magnificent book.” — Piers Brendon, Mail on Sunday

    “Jeal’s Baden-Powell is brave and self-seeking, devious and honorable, a domestic paragon whose repressed homosexuality fired his career, a soldier of genius who ultimately rejected militarism… The story that Tim Jeal has to tell is epic, funny, and touching.” — Philip Oakes, New Statesman

    “Superb.” — Ian Buruma, New York Review of Books
