After his convalescence Petrie returned to India in 1915; at this stage the DCI was concerned about contact between Indian nationalist rebels and German intelligence agents in neutral Siam. Petrie was attached to the British legation in Bangkok for six months from August 1915 as an intelligence officer. His reports convinced the government of India that it needed its own overseas intelligence network to counter the local intelligence threat and ordered Petrie to set one up. He recruited agents during a tour of Singapore, the Dutch East Indies, the Philippines, Hong Kong, China, and Japan, and directed their operations from August 1916 to November 1919, while ostensibly vice-consul in Shanghai. He was honoured with the CIE (Order of the Indian Empire) (1915), OBE (Order of the British Empire) (1918), and CBE (Order of the British Empire) (1919).

States American rabbi's wayward son. As an adult, Spector spends time training to be a heavyweight boxer, a U.S. Marine, and a mercenary. He becomes a skilled combatant and befriends the French (France) pilot (aviator) Jean-Paul DuChamp, whom he calls "Frenchie (Frenchie (comics))." While the pair work for the African mercenary Raoul Bushman (Bushman (comics)) in Egypt, the group stumbles upon an archaeological (archaeology) dig whose crew includes Dr. Peter Alraune and his daughter Marlene. The dig had uncovered an ancient temple where artifacts included a statue of the Egyptian (Egyptian mythology) moon god Khonshu (Khonshu (Marvel Comics)). Intent on looting the dig, Bushman kills Dr. Alraune. In response to Alraune's murder, Spector challenges Bushman to personal combat but is beaten nearly to death and left to die in the sub-zero temperatures of the desert night. Prisoner of War The Danish alliance with Napoleonic France resulted in many Danish (Denmark) colonies being seized by the British (United Kingdom), including the outpost at Frederiksnagore (Serampore). The British East India Company took over Frederiksnagore (Serampore) and Wallich was imprisoned. He was released on parole in 1809 on the merit of his scholarship. 1954–1964 ''Tortuga'' was deployed to the Western Pacific (WestPac) again in 1954. The signing of the Geneva Accords (Geneva Accords (1988)) which ended the fighting between the French (France) and Viet Minh resulted in the creation of two Vietnams — North (North Vietnam) and South (South Vietnam). The former was to be in Communist hands; the latter was to be governed by non-Communist leaders. Diverted to Haiphong from Yokosuka, ''Tortuga'' arrived at her destination on 21 August 1954 to take part in the massive evacuation of French nationals, in "Operation Passage to Freedom", as well as the moving of Vietnamese (Vietnamese people) who chose not to live in the north. The landing ship conducted four round trips from Haiphong in the north to Tourane (now Da Nang), Saigon, and Nha Trang in the south, before she returned to Yokosuka on 4 October. For the remainder of the year, she conducted minesweeper (Minesweeper (ship)) support operations in Korean waters. The '''Franks''' formed one of several west Germanic tribes who entered the late Roman Empire from Frisia as foederati and established a lasting realm in an area that covers part of today's France and Germany (Franconia), forming the historic kernel of both these modern countries. The Frankish realm underwent many partitions and repartitions; since the Franks divided their property among surviving sons, and lacked a broad sense of a res publica, they conceived of the realm as a large amount of private property. This practice explains in part the difficulty of describing precisely the dates and physical boundaries of any of the Frankish kingdoms and who ruled the various sections. ('''more... (Franks)''') The '''Eureka Stockade''' was a miners' revolt in 1854 in Victoria (Victoria (Australia)), Australia, against the officials supervising the gold-mining regions of Ballarat. The roots of the Eureka Stockade uprising lay in the inability of a fledgling colonial government to cope with the new demographics of the colony. It is to Australian history what the storming of the Bastille is to French (France) history and the Battle of the Alamo is to American (United States) history. Although the revolt failed, it was a watershed event in Australian politics, and is often characterised as the nation's "Birth of Democracy". ('''more... (Eureka Stockade)''') '''Humphrey Bogart''' was an iconic American (United States) film actor during his life and remains a legend decades after his death. Bogart typically played smart, playful, courageous, tough, occasionally reckless characters who lived in a corrupt world, anchored by a hidden moral code. Outside of the U.S., Bogart is seen as a cult figure; French (France) actors such as Jean-Paul Belmondo were deeply influenced by his work and image. Bogart appeared in 75 feature films, including ''Casablanca (Casablanca (film))'', the ''The Maltese Falcon (The Maltese Falcon (1941 film))'' and ''The African Queen'', for which he won an Academy Award (Academy Awards) for Best Actor (Academy Award for Best Actor). ('''more...

It is part of the 14eme arrondissement (14ème arrondissement, Paris), having been absorbed into Paris along with other districts and villages in 1860. Like its counterpart, Montmartre, the neighborhood of Montparnasse became famous at the beginning of the 20th century, referred to as the ''Années Folles'' (the Crazy Years), when it was the heart of intellectual and artistic life in Paris with its legendary cafés. ('''more... (Montparnasse)''') The '''Somme''' is a river in Picardy, northern France. The name ''Somme'' comes from a Celtic (Celtic languages) word meaning ''tranquility''.
