 About the Book 

A vividly personal account of one mans war from training as a conscript at Bovington, troop convoy via Durban, the long North African campaign, the push north to victory through Italy and the eventual return to Civvy Street- the heartache of long separation from loved ones at home- the comradeship of daily life at close quarters overcoming the common enemies of extreme heat, dust, cold and wet- the tragedies, mishaps and close calls- the fun and companionship of better times- the forging of lifetime friendships- and the joy of his final home-coming to Blighty.Around the Cape, a desert sojourn, an Italian adventure, and a memorable flight in a Halifax bomber, all rolled into one true story in which a 10th Royal Hussar illustrates how ordinary men adapted to their surroundings to help shape world events
