Product description

Review

A hearty raconteur, Lord Ashdown has written a winner. --Good Book Guide, September 2010

About the Author

Paddy Ashdown spent the first seventeen years of his adult life serving his country as an officer in the Royal Marine Commandos, a member of the Special Boat Service and as an employee of the ‘shadowy side’ of the Foreign Office. He then went on to become Liberal Democrat MP for Yeovil and leader of his party, and the international community’s High Representative in war-torn Bosnia. He currently sits in the House of Lords. He is author of two books for Aurum: A Brilliant Little Operation, which tells the story of the Cockleshell heroes of World War Two, and his autobiography, A Fortunate Life.
