Edward Phillips Oppenheim. The Great Impersonation was written following World War I and is considered by many to be perhaps his best novel. The story focuses on German espionage in England prior to the start of World War I. The tale centers on two characters that are almost identical in appearance. Indeed, while both attend the same school in England, they are often mistaken for one another.

Edward Phillips Oppenheim (22 October 1866 – 3 February 1946) was an English novelist, in his lifetime a major and successful writer of genre fiction including thrillers. Edward Phillips Oppenheim was born 22 October 1866 in Leicester, the son of Henrietta Susannah Temperley Budd and Edward John Oppenheim, a leather merchant. He went to Wyggeston Grammar School.

The Great Impersonation is a mystery novel written by E. Phillips Oppenheim and published in 1920. German Leopold von Ragastein meets his doppelganger. What I love most about this book is the way Oppenheim manages to keep you guessing until the very end. There are subtle clues throughout the book but unless you know what to look for you won't notice them until the 2nd or 3rd reading. The unfolding story of WWI takes a back seat to the murder mystery and subsequent solving thereof. The ongoing romance woven through the story is beautifully written.

What I love most about this book is the way Oppenheim manages to keep you guessing until the very end. There are subtle clues throughout the book but unless you know what to look for you won't notice them until the 2nd or 3rd reading.
The unfolding story of WWI takes a back seat to the murder mystery and subsequent solving thereof. The ongoing romance woven through the story is beautifully written.
I highly recommend reading The Great Impersonation to anyone that enjoys historical fiction, intrigue, romance and espionage.

Once I got past the older style of writing it was very hard to put the book down. An interesting spy-mystery. In "Tramp Royale" Robert A Heinlein mentioned that he really admired the work of Phillps Oppenheim. I am glad I was able to find this in Kindle edition.

I first read this years ago and loved it then!! I reread it recently and still love it. An Englishman and a German meet in Africa before World War 1. They look almost alike in appearance so the German plans to kill the Englishman and take his place in England. Throughout the entire book, it is not clear if the German actually succeeded- or is the English man actually pretending to be the German (who is pretending to be the English man!)

Brilliant book - had me guessing till the very end. Written in an old-fashioned style, but none the worse for that. This is story-telling at its best!

I generally like Oppenheim. Especially his novels set during or leading up to the Great War. An interesting resolution as the main character must play the role of another man in the pursuit of espionage and love.

This is one of my favorite older books. I have read it 2-3 times just because I like the characters and the plot so much. It is a classic about hidden identity.

A wonderful story. Beautifully written. Gripping and engaging from start to finish. Many thumbs up. I would recommend this book without hesitation.
The book kept me engaged from start to finish. Each character had a unique quality that added to the suspense. I can see why Ian Fleming enjoyed reading Mr Oppenheim's work. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book, and I am looking for ward to starting The Spy Paramount. The quality of the book itself was excellent
