Synopsis

Major General Sir Roy Redgrave has enjoyed an unusual, some might say eccentric, life. Born into the same family as the well known actors, he was brought up in Romania as part of a thriving international community before he joined the British Army and advanced to high rank. Following on from the success of his memoir Balkan Blue the author has pulled together a superb pot pourri of anecdotes covering his family, his military career and post-retirement travels and experiences. Readers will delight in the scope of this book which ranges widely from aristocratic life in feudal Romania to the dangers an intrigue of the Cold War; from the charm of French rural life to Franz Josef Land and encounters with polar bears, walruses and seals. We travel with this intrepid man from Kathmandu to Lhasa where he lived with impoverished Tibetans whose generosity and friendliness made the discomfort of primitive living at such altitudes disappear.These and other extraordinary experiences made this a fascinating read.
