The Book Guild Ltd., Lewes, 1st ed., 1993. 191 pp., photo-ills., + maps & plans. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Very small owner's label to prelim o/w Nr.FINE. The author worked in general engineering before serving in the British Army for ten years with the Royal Engineers and the Royal Tank Regiment. With admirable sangfroid he describes the rigours of life in the Desert Campaign that defeated Rommel and the D-Day landings which signalled the end of Hitler. Then followed years of equally gruelling slog on construction and engineering projects in the Middle East, North and West Africa. Providence was often on his side.
