Product Description

Product Description

This is Brough Scott’s moving biography of his grandfather – the author of the best-selling Warrior: The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse. 'Galloper' Jack Seely was at the heart of some of the most important events of the first part of the 20th century. His early life was one of adventure, sailing to
the antipodes, saving the crew of a French ship wrecked off the coast of the Isle of Wight and later raising a squadron and joining the Boer War, where he was awarded the DSO for his bravery. On his return to England he was elected Conservative MP for the Isle of Wight, but just like his close friend Winston Churchill, later crossed over to the Liberal party. At the outbreak of the First World War, Seely went to the Western Front and there made his name as a humane and innovative leader. Written with honesty and wit, this is an exciting, unusual and thought-provoking biography of a man who has been unfairly treated by history.

The biography of a man who crammed enough action for six men into his lifetime. If you have read Warhorse by Michael Morpurgo then you should read Warrior by Jack Seeley and then this book which is his biography.

It was the type of book you can come back to now and again, he was so full of himself and a right pain at times, but what a self publicist !
