Listing Detail Tabs

Kiwi Richard Granville McDonald has written a modern-day Flashman story, based on his own experiences in the British and New Zealand armies.

It tells the story of the extraordinary military career of Ted McPherson who 'came closer than most to changing history by mistake'. Ted MacPherson has survived the torments of Sandhurst drill sergeants, blackmail by Rudolph Hess at Spandau prison, encounters with prime ministers and presidents, near death at the hands of Somali warlord Mohammed Farah Aideed and entrapment by a Cypriot brothel madam. In between, he has found himself in strife with the army, with women and many forms of authority.

It's a story about an antipodean larrikin who sails too close to the wind. It's a great yarn told by a man with a gift for storytelling.
