4.0 out of 5 stars What might you have done in the War, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Offers an insight and expresses an understanding of the mind-set of the teens and twenties budding gentlemen who marched off to the Great War, rather than a profession. Quietly challenges the reader to consider what they might have done had they been born a generation or two earlier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia for expats, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why did young Brits seek adventure in colonies and former colonies? Although this book does not directly suggest answers to that question it does offer a collection of memories recorded by a forester of the old school that, in their own way, make the attraction of an expatriate easy to understand. The life of the pre independence and post independence colonial officer in anglo Africa will never be available to a new generation of adventurers. These days they seek reawrds as an aid worker or NGO activist. However, they too will enjoy this book.
