Review

"Generally Speaking: The Memoirs of Richard Rohmer, is written with Rohmer's characteristic frankness and insight."

(Ebooks Baba blog)

"Rohmer writes in a light, conversational, style that is easy to absorb" (Canadian Military Journal, Spring 2005)

"After a cursory speed-read of this autobiography, I sat down and wrote a hasty draft review. Not satisfied, I then re-read the book and realized that this is one of the best Canadian books to come along in years." -Vic Johnson, Airforce Magazine, Winter 2005

Format: Hardcover
MGen Rohmer is probably Canada's most decorated citizen. He writes in his typical sparse and witty style. MGen Rohmer details his somewhat dysfunctional childhood in 1920's and 30's Canada (there is even a brief American interlude). In typical Canadian fashion he is humble about his wartime experience as an RCAF Recon pilot. Maybe it is the voice of a now mature man recounting the wild exploits of youth. His discriptions of flying recce missions low and slow thru a flack filled sky are spin chilling. Rohmer was awarded the DFC after one of these missions. Rohmer returned from the war somewhat at a loss as to what he would now do with his life, as so many young men did after the war. He decided to return to school and soon graduated from university with a law degree. MGen Rohmer then embarked on a successful career as a real estate lawyer and political advisor. Rohmer was involved in many projects familiar to residents of the Toronto/ Southern Ontario region. Rohmer is a bit of a Don Quixote type tilting at windmills. He tells of his successes and failures. He is a man of vision and sometimes "big" ideas all in an effort for his fellow Canadians. He always speaks well of the people he has encountered in life, both the heroes and the villians. However his frustrations do come thru especially when dealing with myopic, obtuse politicians and the left wing hand wringers that dominate the Canadian media scene (most media in Canada seem to be embarrassed to be Canadians and celebrate Canada and its heroes and icons, they are the only ones outside of NKorea that believe that communism actually works and that Stalin was a swell guy who is misunderstood) Anyways......Rohmer has met many of the "rich and famous" and tells of his encounters with them. Often in a humorous manner.Read more ›

I totally agree with Syd Sutherland's review. He wrote an excellent review of this true Canadian hero. I read this book last year. Thank God for Major-General Rohmer, and the thousand of Canadian and Allied troops (including my father and law) who sacrificed themselves for the freedom we so enjoy. They were true peacemakers. We enjoy our precious freedoms because of them. Major-General continues to serve his country unselfishly in so many ways. I would encourage you to purchase this book. It will be time well spent.
