Listing Detail Tabs


The author, a New Zealander, leaves his homeland with £80. For nearly two years he wanders alone over some 22,000 miles in twenty countries to gratify a life-long curiosity about such fabulous cities as Babylon, Isfahan and Troy; to satisfy his longing to see places where he had fought with his countrymen in the War; and to trace six people he had known then – in Egypt, Italy and in prison camp – whose present whereabouts are uncertain.
His accounts of present-day experiences in Egypt, Libya, Crete and elsewhere are interspersed with recollections of battles, of “cobbers” and of capture at Belhamid, near Tobruk. In Eastern Europe he relates his adventures of today, adding memoirs of Stalag VIIIA, or escapes, and of days with the Russian Army. But whether his way leads into lost cities in Ceylon, into bawdy Baghdad lanes, along the chariot-rutted streets of ancient Mycenae or Ephesus, into Istanbul or Gallipoli or San Marino, he writes, against the backgrounds of their colourful past and present, about the men, women and incidents he meets on the way.
