Hi Waleed,

Your too kind! Both of you helped with your clues especially "spy" :wink: Maclean and Philby were the ones that came to mind at first, but using ALL the clues I managed to narrow it down... Next Question (showing some national bias maybe?)

I'm looking for a battle that took place nearly 43 years ago, involving a number of nations for one of which it is a very famous battle. The battle was one of many in a looong lasting war.... Name of battle? Further hints to be supplied if necessary, but with you two lads on the scent I wonder if they will be necessary.

regards from Downunder Robb :D
