This is an auction for LIVING DANGEROUSLY, the autobiography of Ranulph Fiennes.

Review from

"Cashiered after an incredibly stupid "bit of fun," Sir Ranulph found his niche in life - explorer. It soon became apparent that he was a 19th Century British man trapped in the 20th Century, and the same conduct which had made Britain a world power was now a social embarrassment. As a member of the Royal Geographic Society, Sir Ran has gone on to conduct some of the most spectacular explorations in the world - and become a damned nice chap along the way. None better. Sir Ranulph's recollections of his service and redemption in Oman are priceless. His military career was salvaged by an offer to serve as a "seconded" officer to the Sultan of Oman's Forces during the Dhofar Campaign of the 1970's. In this little known campaign, British "seconded" officers led Omani troops in successfully putting down a spreading Communist insurgency. Any officer or NCO who will be leading or advising indigenous troops should read this book. Sir Ranulph led, fed, sheltered, ate with and loved his Omanis - and they reciprocated. This is a sort of "Apocalypse Now" with a happy ending. If you are looking for a personal journey along with high adventure, you can do no better that "Living Dangerously" by Sir Ranulph Fiennes."
