An Unsung Hero 12 April 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I got this from the library and it blew me away! Bernard Freyberg won his VC in the Western Front during WWI, and his talents are pretty scary. Bored with life in NZ as a dentist, BF was a mercenary in the Mexican civil war when WWI broke out. Pancho Vila(sp?) didn't want to lose his services, so he had to E&E across Mexico, then spend the last of his money to get up to New York, to volunter his services at the British consulate. Apparently that worthy was swamped with Commonwealth volunters, who could only be told that there was a tramp steamer with some berths leaving for London in a few days. Being without funds, BF found an illegal cage fight that night, and soundly thrashed the local champion in his weight class. The next night he used his winnings to back himself against the champion in the next weight class, who he also beat.
And the story just gets better from there. This guy was a friggin' LEGEND!
