About the Author
Morris Beckman served as a radio officer in the Merchant Navy during the Second World War. He took part in the Battle of the Atlantic and was torpedoed and bombed, which he described in Atlantic Roulette (1996). Late in 1942, he joined the Mogul Line in Bombay and his ships ran supplies to the Middle East - he took part in the invasions of Sicily and Italy. He was the founder member of the 43 Group of Jewish ex-servicemen which attacked and destroyed Mosley's Fascist party in a protracted campaign in the 1940s. He is the author of the acclaimed The Jewish Brigade: An Army with Two Masters 1944-45.
