"What did you do after the war Daddy?" was the question Lorna A-W asked her SAS founder member father. The answer was a life of adventure, daring and determination with considerable personal risk. His triumphs in fighting Shifta bandits in Eritrea and communist terrorists in Malaya or canoeing down the River Volga and sailing the Atlantic from Ghana to England across the Atlantic ocean in home built boats are experiences which few other men could match. Lorna's account is good reading and it was books like this which made me join the army many years ago.

In more than some ways ecstatic to have read this book since I have a particular interest in British Malaya and Singapore.
I must applaud the author for her accessible and engaging prose style, for it did not intimidate or deter a general reader like me despite my lack of knowledge about boats or sailing. I haven’t enjoyed a biography quite so much in a long time! The stories are nothing short of awe-inspiring! Reading this book has been an exhilarating experience for me. Thank you so much!
