Ad Ultimo: A Memoir of International Relations in War & Peace (Paperback)

Pre-order. Despatched on publication 22/11/2018


Over the course of a truly remarkable life John Deverill has had a front row seat for some of the most important events in the 20th century. This second volume covers the years 1953 to the present day - from drinking too much with Krushchev at embassy receptions to swimming across the Volga to give his KGB minders the slip; this lively account perfectly captures the glamour and intrigue of Moscow in the 1950s. This volume also covers Deverill's time in Yemen during the tail end of the British administration in Aden and much else in this immensely adventurous and international life.
