If you are an Anglophile with an appreciation of English lit and wit; a war buff with a romantic side well...you will love this book. de Wiart is simply a classic English solider in the old mode before political correctness. It's a great read. I hope they make the movie and/or some enterprising young writer turns this fellow's life into historical fiction as highly readable as his own non-fiction. Oh, and Churchill loved this guy. Nuff said.

The earlier reviewers point out that Carton de Wiart served his adopted country long and bravely. He suffered the loss of an eye and a hand in battles before it came to official attention that this Belgian aristocrat was not technically a British subject. No matter, he soldiered on. True, there is little technical information about his campaigns. His straightforward comments about places and people do not "grate" on my ears; they are harmonious and welcome in these days of imbecile political correctness and other contrived sensitivities. His comments on India, for instance, apply still today, only everything is worse. A noteworthy failing is that while he served in China as the official British liaison in the rank of Lieutenant General, he makes no mention of the gross levels theft and corruption that wasted so much of the military supplies brought to China at the cost of many Allied lives and much treasure. The vendor, SuperBoookDeals, waited seven days after the order was placed to dispatch the book, and USPS media mail took five more days to deliver it.

I would recommend this book to all with an interest in WW2 and even before that.

Biographies like these aren't written any longer. The language is clear and simple, but I kept noticing how the book rarely give negative critic of anyone, maybe except the Bolsheviks and the Jap. Other than that it is all positive.
It goes from great to fantastic to magnificent to speechless and beyond.
