"In sixty years he has crammed into his life a variety of thrilling experiences; at seventeen he shot his first man; at eighteen he hunted a double-murderer across Rhodesia; by the time he was twenty four he had fought at Gallipoli and through the Great War of 1914-18. he sailed round the Horn in a windjammer; fought in a revolution; walked across the Andes; defeated a group of unscrupulous rogues to save a friend's business; was nearly killed in a stampede of wild cattle; was the sole survivor of a gold-seeking hunt in the Amazon; and rescued Jews from the clutches of Hitler.
This is the exciting autobiography of a man who packed more incidents into his life than most men dream about."
